War rages on in Sudan

Story by ZBC Reporter

THE conflict continues in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, with the death toll climbing to at least 551 as of this Sunday.

The country’s health ministry said more than 5,000 people have been injured since the fighting began in mid-April.

The foreign ministers of Arab League countries convened an emergency meeting in Cairo, Egypt on Sunday and agreed to set up a tripartite liaison committee to work on resolving the ongoing conflict.

Fighting between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the rival paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in Khartoum and other areas erupted on April 15, with the two sides accusing each other of initiating the conflict which has pushed the country to the edge of a humanitarian crisis.

According to the United Nations statistics, thousands of Sudanese citizens have been displaced or forced to seek refuge in safe areas in Sudan and neighbouring countries, including Egypt, Ethiopia and Chad.
