War and famine have forced more than 2 million children in South Sudan to flee their homes, the United Nations said Monday, as 21 people died in the latest attack on civilians by unknown gunmen.Roughly 62 percent of refugees from South Sudan are children, according to the U.N. statement, and more than 75,000 children are alone or without their families.In a country of 12 million people, nearly three in every four children do not go to school, UNHCR and the U.N. children's agency UNICEF said.The true figure may be much higher since there are no accurate death tolls available for South Sudan, one of the world's least developed nations.
