U.S. Marines poised to enter South Sudan

U.S. Marines are poised to enter South Sudan to help evacuate Americans and provide security for the U.S. Embassy, after hundreds of people were killed during a week of fighting. Thousands of civilians have taken refuge in United Nations bases within South Sudan. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon addressed the people in a message, "You are seeing people leave the country amid increasing chaos. The U.N. will stay with you."
Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr reports.

Warrior Security has a major presence in South Sudan. Outstations Operations Manager Rob McKee joined AC360 via Skype in South Sudan to talk about the latest developments.
