Anti-government rebels and the South Sudanese army are accusing each other of violating the terms of a ceasefire, hours after it came into effect. The nation’s army and rebels last week agreed to cease hostilities from midnight Dec. 24, in a bid to end three years of violence that has claimed tens of thousands of lives and forced 4 million people from their homes in the nation that only got independence in 2011.
