Photos of the Day: Dec. 29, 2013

A displaced boy mimics the photographer taking a picture of him, using a fake plastic jewel, at a United Nations compound which has become home to thousands of people displaced by the recent fighting, in the capital Juba, South Sudan Sunday, Dec. 29, 2013. Some 25,000 people live in two hastily arranged camps for the internally displaced in Juba and nearly 40,000 are in camps elsewhere in the country, two weeks after violence broke out in the capital and a spiraling series of ethnically-based attacks coursed through the nation, killing at least 1,000 people.
