South Sudanese citizens who have been displaced to UN protection camps as a result of conflict in the country say they feel safer when those camps are searched for weapons and other prohibited items.
Currently around 219,000 people live in protection of civilians sites set up by the UN mission in South Sudan, UNMISS.
To ensure the sites, known as POCs, remain civilian in nature, the mission regularly carries out surprise inspections.
Daniel Dickinson joined one of the search operations in Juba, the country’s capital.
