South Sudan is marking an anniversary on Monday, which its citizens, no doubt, wish they had not been part of.
A year ago, violence erupted as government forces and rebels loyal to the deposed Vice-President started fighting.
The conflict has led to the displacement of close to two million people.
Around 100,000 are living in UN protection of civilians sites around the country.
In Bor, the UN is sheltering around 3000 people.
In April, the camp was attacked and at least 30 people lost their lives.
Two Indian peacekeepers also died.
