JUBA, Sudan - A rebel militia killed 29 people including police and civilians in a south Sudan cattle raid, the southern army said on Tuesday, adding to the region's woes ahead of independence in July.

The vast territory has been wracked by violence since southerners voted in January to separate from the north and form a new nation. More than 1,500 people have since died in south-south violence, according to the United Nations.

At least seven rebel militias are at war with the government, the UN says. Gun battles between these militias and the army, and tribal warring over cattle, have erupted in nine of the south's 10 states.
