The food crisis in South Sudan has worsen as another million people are at risk of starvation in the next three months, a refugee agency has warned.

The Norwegian Refugee Council says the worst affected areas are those which suffer most from armed conflict.

The group warns the food crisis has been greatly aggravated by the effects of the four-year civil war.

The government has been accused of preventing relief food from reaching some areas, while in others fearful farmers have stayed away from their fields, which has significantly decreased domestic food production.

The Norwegian Refugee Council says the current level of aid to South Sudan only reaches fewer than half of the people who need it.
