South Sudan's army stormed the rebel-held town of Bor Tuesday, sending insurgents fleeing nearly a week after they captured the state capital of Jonglei, Information Minister Michael Makwei told AFP.

"The army captured Bor around sunset and the rebel forces are now on the run... We are back in control," Makwei said.
