South Sudan's army and rebels accused each other of responsibility for fresh fighting Saturday in the north-east in breach of a ceasefire to end a brutal 20-month civil war due to come into force later in the day.
"Riek Machar's rebels attacked Malakal yesterday," Friday, and the "assault on Malakal resumed this (Saturday) morning," army spokesman Colonel Philip Aguer said at a press conference. "That's untrue, their forces attacked us near Malakal," rebel spokesman James Gatdet Dak told AFP.
