Gunmen in South Sudan have abducted at least 89 boys, some as young as 13, from their school in Upper Nile State.

According to the UN they were taken while sitting exams and the number could be much higher.

No group has claimed responsibility but armed groups have forcibly recruited ahead of major offensives in the war-torn nation.
