(MENAFN - Arab News) Juba: south sudan's army said on saturday they had 'lost communication" with commanders battling rebels in a key oil state where rebels have seized a major town amid a worsening conflict engulfing the young nation.

however army spokesman malaak ayuen said the situation was 'all calm" in the flashpoint town of bor where at least 58 people were killed and more than 100 others wounded when gunmen stormed a un base on thursday.

the un security council called the attack on the camp where thousands of civilians were sheltering an 'outrage" that may 'constitute a war crime."

among the dead were children and the un has warned that the death toll could increase.



the top un official in the war-torn nation toby lanzer praised peacekeepers for preventing what could have been a massacre of up to 5000 people and vowed the world body would use 'lethal force" again to protect civilians under their protection.

in the north of the country in the troubled oil-state of unity the army is fighting rebels loyal to sacked vice president riek machar after the insurgents launched a renewed offensive targeting the young nation's key oil fields.

rebel fighters recaptured the town of bentiu on tuesday with un peacekeepers reporting corpses littering the streets.
