300 dead in S Sudan

Authorities have called for a ceasefire in the war-torn African nation of South Sudan.

Recent clashes are believed to have killed almost 300 people in just a few days.

The youngest country in the world just turned five, breaking away from Sudan in 2011.

Civil war broke out in 2013, killing more than 50,000 people and displacing millions.

So what's brought on the recent spate of violence? Humanitarian worker Dwain Hindricksen told Mark Sainsbury, filling in for Paul Henry.
