Where do South Sudan rebel SSLA weapons come from?

South Sudan became independent in July but is already confronted by several rebel groups.

Three days ago, one of them, the South Sudan Liberation Army (SSLA) carried out an attack which resulted in the death of at least 75 people.

In an exclusive interview, the SSLA's leader Major General Bapiny Montyuil told the BBC's James Copnall in Khartoum, Sudan, why they are still fighting.

Our reporter later explained to Peter Okwoche from the BBC's Focus on Africa programme the threat the SSLA and other rebel groups represent to the government of South Sudan.
