It is thought that up to 10,000 people have been killed in the South Sudanese conflict and a half a million displaced.

Over the weekend, troops loyal to the government recaptured the town of Bor from rebels led by the former Vice President, Riek Machar.

The conflict began as a political feud but has taken on ethnic overtones, pitting two tribes - Dinka and Nuer - against each other.

Mark Lowen has travelled to the town of Bor to witness the aftermath.
