UNITED NATIONS - A number of aid agencies called on the United Nations on Wednesday to increase the number of troops to be deployed to South Sudan after it secedes from the north on Saturday.

Ahead of the official separation of poor, conflict-ravaged but oil-producing South Sudan, the UN Security Council is expected to approve the deployment of up to 7,000 UN peacekeepers in the south.

"The increasing violence and human rights violations this year underscore the need for a robust and flexible peacekeeping presence in South Sudan," said Daniel Bekele, Africa director at Human Rights Watch in a press release issued by a variety of aid organizations.
