UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has criticised South Sudan, saying its seizure of Heglig oil field in Sudan is illegal.

Ban urged the south to withdraw its forces immediately to stop border clashes spiralling into a war.

South Sudan has issued a statement to say it is not interested in war with its northern neighbour.

It says Heglig is rightfully part of South Sudan and it does not want the north to use it as a base for attacks.
