KAMPALA, Uganda— Fighting in Southern Sudan between the region's army and a rebel faction has killed 105 people, including civilians, a southern army spokesman said Friday.

Col. Philip Aguer, the spokesman for the southern army, said a former high-ranking southern army member who had rebelled against the southern government broke a cease-fire by attacking the towns of Fangak and Dor on Wednesday. Aguer said renegade commander George Athor's troops captured Fangak, and the fighting continued through Thursday until the southern military retook it. No new fighting was reported on Friday.

Aguer said 105 people were killed: 39 civilians, 24 southern police and soldiers and 42 of Athor's men.
