Young displaced children wash their clothes in a stream of fetid water that runs through a camp for people who have fled the recent violence, as a United Nations helicopter flies overhead in the distance, in the capital Juba, South Sudan Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014. South Sudanese government troops on Friday retook Bentiu, the capital of oil-producing Unity state, from rebels loyal to the country's former vice president, a military spokesman said, while hundreds of thousands remain displaced in the nearly monthlong conflict.
