South Sudan rebels claim 700 government troops defect

Rebels fighting government troops in South Sudan said Thursday that 700 men from the government side have defected with all their equipment and were heading to join the rebels. "Kiir’s army has suffered its biggest yet mass defection since the current conflict began on 15th December," rebel spokesman Lul Ruai Koang said in a statement. There was no immediate independent confirmation of the claim. He said the rebel forces repulsed the attack, killing 60 government soldiers in the process.
