Anti-government rebels in South Sudan have attacked the key town of Bor, just hours before a deadline for a ceasefire expires.

A UN spokesman said the fighting began at daybreak, not far from the town's UN compound.

A South Sudanese army spokesman confirmed a "big fight" had happened.

Uganda's president has threatened the rebels with military action if they fail to agree to a ceasefire by the end today, and begin talks.

But the rebel leader, Riek Machar, has demanded the release of all his detained political allies before any talks can begin, something South Sudanese President Salva Kiir has rejected.
