The United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) has categorically denied any plan to place the country under international protection.

Media reports had suggested that the move was imminent due to a break-down in peace talks.

South Sudan continues to suffer instability as a result of fighting between the government and rebels.

Around two million people have fled their homes.

Gabriel Shadar has been speaking to the UNMISS spokesperson, Joe Contreras.
