The Consumer Price Index (CPI) increased in June by 310% year-on-year, the highest in the world and historic ever recorded in the country. The recent fighting in Juba disrupted markets and trade, significantly reducing food availability and consequent remarkable increase in food prices in the capital to as high as 45-80% for legumes, 12-58% for cereals and up to 70-80% for fuel within one week following the cessation of hostilities.
Two children died of malnutrition on Thursday and many more are in danger among the displaced people taking refuge in the Lobe area, eight kilometres west of Deribat in East Jebel Marra.

Activists told Radio Dabanga that Hanan Babiker Eisa (8) and Ibrahim Hamid Jaafar (5) are the latest casualties.
