The first planeload of refugees stranded for months in a camp in Sudan has arrived in South Sudan.

The 164 people have arrived in Juba after flying from Khartoum, where they had been taken by bus from their camp.

They are among up to 500,000 southerners who lost their Sudanese nationality when South Sudan gained independence last year.

The two countries have recently come close to all-out war, particularly in oil fields near their common border.
