      Military Seizes South Sudanese Capital from Rebels

      Voice of America reports South Sudan's government says its army has retaken one of two state capitals seized by renegade soldiers last week.

      The government said in a Twitter message that its forces have retaken Bor, the capital of Jonglei state, adds VOA, and are clearing out rebel forces.

      A local radio station reported fighting in the town and said witnesses confirmed that the rebels had withdrawn, notes VOA.
