JUBA (AFP) - South Sudan rebels are retreating as the army pushes to retake the key town of Bor, the military said on Friday, as battles rage despite peace efforts to end the conflict.

"We have enough forces who will defeat the rebels within 24 hours," army spokesman Philip Aguer told reporters. "These forces - the rebels - are now retreating back."
