Reporter Ramita Navai and director Julie Noon travel to the South of Sudan to investigate an alarming development in the targeted killing of women and children.

2000 people have been killed during 2009 alone and a quarter of a million people displaced. Families are being torn apart and much of the population are on the brink of starvation. The team investigates how an escalation of violence and an increase in child abductions is threatening to jeopardise a fragile peace in a country that has already suffered the longest and bloodiest civil war in the continents’ history

"the crusading strand shows how women and children bear the brunt of violence in areas of conflict. Ramita Navai and director Julie Noon travel to southern Sudan to see the extent of the unrest that has left more than 2,000 people dead this year, and discover children are not only at risk from malnutrition and armed attacks, but also increasing incidence of child-abduction."
