During her three-day visit, Amos is expected to meet with representatives of the government and humanitarian partners ?? discuss ways to scale up relief assistance and improve access to communities in need.

“She will underscore the importance of ensuring the protection of civilians, and of aid workers,” the UN said in a statement.

Amos, also the emergency relief coordinator, is expected in the capital, Juba, Jonglei and Lakes states, where hundreds of thousands of families remain displaced.

Over 1,000 people have been killed and more than half a million displaced from their homes, in five weeks of conflict that engulfed the new nation. Also over 100,000 people have fled to neighboring Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan.

More than 250,000 people, aid agencies said, have received life-saving assistance, including an estimated 70,000 people sheltering at UN bases across the country.

    Amos, "also the emergency relief coordinator, is expected in the capital, Juba, Jonglei and Lakes states, where hundreds of thousands of families remain displaced". What about Bentiu and Malakal do they not have thosands displaced as well? Why favioring only those who escaped to the safe state (RUBEK) than civilians who runs to the bush in Bentiu and Malakal?

    We want justice not food. You are supposed to carry out thorough impartial investigations and take those thugs to Hague.
