The situation in South Sudan is threatening to escalate into full-scale civil war as the UN calls for more troops to intervene.
Young South Sudanese have been meeting every month to clean the capital Juba. The environmental movement is a creative protest against civil conflict and unites people from warring tribes.
Aid workers say half-a-million refugees from volatile South Sudan continue to fill sprawling camps in northwestern Uganda. The UN Security Council decided against an arms embargo on Sudanese warring factions.
South Sudan has agreed to accept a regional force after fighting in the capital Juba threatened to plunge the country into a civil war. President Kiir initially opposed the deployment as a breach of national sovereignty.
