South Sudan’s military says it has recaptured the oil hub of Bentiu — one of just two rebel-held cities.

Army spokesman Philip Aguer said the final resistance — a tank protecting a bridge to the city — had been overcome at 14:30 local time (11:30 GMT).

Rebel leader Riek Machar told AFP his forces had withdrawn to save civilians but vowed to fight on.
