Fighting in South Sudan Cuts Off Aid to Civilians, MSF Reports

Hundreds of thousands of civilians in South Sudan have been cut off from aid by a surge in fighting that’s destroyed towns and hospitals across three states, Medecins Sans Frontieres said.

While health workers are treating victims of the violence in the town of Melut in oil-rich Upper Nile state, flights carrying supplies have been suspended, the agency, also known as MSF, said Friday in an e-mailed statement. In Unity state, 300,000 people need assistance in southern areas where aid activities have been halted, according to the United Nations.
