UN assistant secretary-general Toby Lanzer has said he believes thousands of people have lost their lives in the current conflict in South Sudan.
He told the BBC World Service's Newshour programme:
I think it's undeniable at this stage that there must have been thousands of people who have lost their lives.
When I've looked at the hospitals in key towns and I've looked at the hospitals in the capital itself, the range of injuries, this is no longer a situation where we can merely say it's hundreds of people who've lost their lives.
