Sudan massacre survivors short of food

The UN says survivors of a Sudanese massacre in which 185 people were killed are desperately short of food.

The violence targeted mostly women and children and is thought to have been triggered by tribal tensions.

More than 300 youngsters who survived are now being treated for malnutrition.

Al Jazeera's Tarek Bazley reports on the violence near Akobo in southern Sudan.
