South Sudan ceasefire broken

At least 16 people have been killed after rebels attacked south Sudan’s army, shattering a ceasefire, officials say, quoted by BBC. Forces loyal to George Athor blew up two army trucks near the town of Fangak in Jon­glei state, a southern military spokes­man said. Mr Athor took up arms last year, alleging fraud in state elections, but signed a ceasefire last month. The clashes come as Southern Sudan prepares to secede from the north.
