Large numbers of Sudanese people are dying in a refugee camp near the South Sudan. As many as four children are dying each day at the Batil camp. Over 170,000 people have left for camps in South Sudan after fighting began north of the border.
“What we are seeing here in this camp in nothing short of a humanitarian catastrophe,” Helen Patterson, medical coordinator for Medecins Sans Frontieres.
Most of those who’ve died in the camp are children under the age of five.
