NASIR, April 18, 2014 (AFP) - Gebriel Mabil was sitting at home in Bentiu, South Sudan, when the war found him, a lone bullet tearing through the wall striking his seven-year-old son in the jaw.
His son Steven Kueth now sits in a bed in a Nasir hospital, covered in bandages and clinging to life with the help of breathing and feeding tubes.
"I worry about my son because I don't know if he will survive in his state," said Mabil, sitting in the hospital in Upper Nile State where his son was transferred after he was shot.
