South Sudan's army battled rebel forces in the key town of Malakal
Wednesday, a minister said, as other troops flushed out remaining insurgent
pockets a day after recapturing a strategic town.
"We recaptured Bor on Tuesday evening, just before sunset, and this morning
there are currently operations against some pockets of rebels within the
airport area," Information Minister Michael Makwei told AFP.
