Malaria is killing three children each day in an overcrowded camp sheltering civilians in South Sudan, a medical charity said, as people continue to flee fighting despite an August peace deal that has yet to be felt on the ground.Malaria cases in the camp, which is in the capital of northern Unity State, were 43 times higher in August and September than at the start of the year, MSF said.As a result of fighting, the number of civilians sheltering in the United Nations (U.N.) military camp in the town has doubled since May to more than 110,000 people, MSF said.More than 16,000 children under five received malaria treatment during the Sept. 10 to 17 campaign, MSF said.
