(Reuters) - Deadly clashes between south Sudan's army and a renegade commander have killed 105 fighters and civilians, the army said on Friday, as the war-scarred region moves toward independence.

The violence comes days after results of a referendum on secession confirmed south Sudan would declare independence in July, after decades of civil war which claimed 2 million lives.

The region's army said clashes at Fangak in Jonglei state on February 9 and 10 had killed 50 fighters from both sides and 39 civilians, adding to the 16 casualties it reported a day earlier from fighting in Door.

"It was George Athor's men who came with machine guns, AK 47s and started firing," said south Sudan's army spokesman Philip Aguer.
