More than 2,000 internally displaced people were affected by flooding at a Protection of the Civilians (POC) site in Bor, South Sudan, the UN said on May 21.

UN authorities at the site said they were concerned about the possibility of water-borne diseases spreading due to the flooding.

Rainy season in South Sudan generally begins in May and often lasts until November. The UN said that it expected more flooding in the region. Credit: UNMISS via Storyful
