South Sudan Rebels Accuse Government of 'Act of Terror'

South Sudan's armed opposition has accused government troops of attacking a town that has sheltered thousands of displaced people near the Sudan border and sending them fleeing again.

Opposition spokesperson Lam Paul Gabriel calls this week's alleged offensive on Aburoc an "act of terror against innocent civilians." The town had been one of the few remaining rebel strongholds in the region.

Aburoc had been sheltering roughly 10 000 people. Many had been displaced several times by South Sudan's civil war.

Government spokesperson Ateny Wek Ateny says South Sudan's troops wouldn't attack unless in self-defense.
