December 29, 2013 - 19:13 By Carl Odera and Aaron Maasho JUBA (Reuters) - South Sudan's army fought on Sunday with the "White Army" ethnic militia, accusing rebels of mobilising the force despite its offer of a truce to end the conflict in the new country. Two weeks of fighting have left at least 1,000 dead and split the oil- producing country barely two years after it won independence from Sudan.
