Africa's newest nation of South Sudan is only 3 days old, but it already is facing a humanitarian crisis, with about 1,000 people a day crowding into the dusty capital of Juba straining under the population crush.
Sudanese President Omar Bashir's decision to attend South Sudan's independence celebrations in Juba on Saturday has created potentially awkward situations for delegations from countries that have been pressing for his arrest on a war crimes indictment.
The power lines, electricity poles and street lamps that dot the red-dirt roads of the southern Sudanese town of Kapoeta seem out of place next to the rusting tanks and shot-up buildings.
"We are still offering that road map once the [peace treaty] obligations are fulfilled," said Barrie Walkley, the top U.S. diplomat in South Sudan.
Barrie Walkley, the senior U.S. diplomat in Juba, added, "It is not the numbers, but the pace at which they are returning that is creating problems."
