JUBA - A large rebel group in South Sudan on Wednesday declared a ceasefire with the government of the new African nation, which is battling insurgent militias on several fronts.

South Sudan seceded from the north on July 9, a separation won in a January referendum that was the climax of a 2005 peace deal ending decades of civil war with Khartoum.

The oil producing state is struggling with poverty, underdevelopment and persistent instability that threatens its east African neighbors.

At least seven rebel militias are fighting the new government's forces in remote parts of a country roughly the size of France.
