JUBA - Around 2.7 million people in South Sudan will require food aid from next year with crop failures and violence hitting Africa's newest nation hard, the United Nations said on Thursday.

South Sudan won its independence from Sudan in July but the new nation has been struggling to build up state institutions, end tribal and rebel violence and overcome an economic crisis.

Landlocked South Sudan imports much of its food needs from Sudan but border trade has been disrupted by armed clashes.

More than 80,000 people have fled to South Sudan from northern border states where Khartoum's army has been fighting insurgents for months.
