An army spokesman in South Sudan has said that government troops have recaptured Bentiu, a strategically important hub for the country's oil-producing region.
The fighting has seen South Sudan's oil output fall by about 20%.
Ahead of the government advance, thousands of people fled Bentiu, one of two main cities seized by rebel forces.
