Rebels recapture South Sudan oil town

Rebels are said to have committed acts of violence against civilians in Malakal since they arrived one week ago.

    Rebel forces recaptured the south Sudanese town of Malakal one week ago and have been committing acts of violence against civilians since then, according to journalists.

    The rebels broke into a church and raped and abducted young girls.

    The only civilians remaining in Malakal are those too weak or too old to leave.

    More than 10,000 people are believed to have been killed in two and a half months of violence in the country.

    Al Jazeera's Anna Cavell reports.
