South Sudan: Humanitarian Snapshot (as of 27 January 2012)


Within South Sudan, over 350,000 people fled rebel militia attacks and inter-communal clashes in 2011. Meanwhile, fighting in Sudan's Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile states forced approximately 80,000 people to seek refuge in South Sudan since June 2011. Humanitarians continue to respond to emergency needs of more than 360,000 South Sudanese who have returned from Sudan since late 2010 and to the nearly 3 million people currently in need of emergency food aid in the country.
