Some 14,000 South Sudanese, mostly women and children, have fled their country's civil war to Sudan in the past fortnight, creating an "emergency within an emergency," the U.N. refugee agency warned Saturday.The influx has seriously strained U.N. agencies in the country, which are facing a severe funding shortfall.They had hoped to raise $152 million (135 million euros) for 2015 to care for South Sudanese refugees in Sudan but have only received 10 percent of this.South Sudan seceded from Sudan in 2011 under a peace deal that ended a 22-year civil war.
