Countless numbers of people in South Sudan are on the run from government troops, targeted because of their tribe amid a brutal civil war. Communities hide in the wilderness to avoid violence, but there is nothing to eat, fueling a man-made famine as aid agencies struggle to reach people. Special correspondent Jane Ferguson reports in partnership with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
