Infographic: South Sudan in crisis

This week, we share an infographic from Al Jazeera, which takes a look at the numbers behind the humanitarian crisis in the world's youngest country – South Sudan. Using data from UN OCHA and UN FAO, it shows that “this crisis is exacerbating what was already a difficult humanitarian situation in the youngest and one of the poorest countries in the world” – with 707,400 internally displaced people.
