Several countries are evacuating their citizens from South Sudan following days of fighting that saw hundreds of people killed.

Germany, the UK, Italy, Japan, India and Uganda have already started taking their citizens out of the country.

A ceasefire between forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and Vice-President Riek Machar is holding for a second day in the capital, Juba.

Mr Machar and his troops have also left Juba "to avoid further confrontation".

The evacuations are being carried out by military and chartered planes, as commercial flights have not yet resumed.
