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Rebel leader Riek Machar told AFP his forces had withdrawn to save civilians but vowed to fight on.
