Hospital resources growing scarce in South Sudan

Hospitals in South Sudan are overflowing. The bloody conflict has killed more than 1,000 people since violence erupted almost two weeks ago. Many more have been injured. (SOUNDBITE) (Juba Arabic) SUDAN PEOPLE'S LIBERATION ARMY (SPLA) MEDICAL OFFICER, SABINA MORIBA NOAH, SAYING (AUDIO AS INCOMING): "We have received a lot of injured people here - both soldiers and civilians. Our bed capacity is stretched and we don't have many resources. We need a lot of help from the government because of these issues." Fighting between rival groups has triggered clashes in much of the country - often along ethnic lines. The hope is tensions could ease after the government proposed a ceasefire with rebels Friday. Meanwhile, the first reinforcements to the U.N. peacekeepers are arriving in the capital, Juba. 72 Bangladeshi police officers will be deployed to help manage the growing population of displaced civilians.
