100 people killed, scores injured as fighting rages in Sudan


At least one hundred people were said to have been killed and many others injured as fight between Sudan’s military and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, (RSF), rages on in Khartoum, the country’s capital.

Voice of America, (VOA), reported on Monday that both sides are claiming control of strategic sites, with calls for a ceasefire growing.

The military headquarters, Khartoum international airport and areas around the presidential palace are the current main battlefields between the military and the Rapid Support Forces.

The clash is reported to have affected power supply and water systems in the capital, thereby making life more difficult for those trapped indoors by the fighting and people wounded in the clashes.

The UN envoy to Sudan, Volker Perthes, said that more than 1,800 have so far been wounded in the fighting and warned that many people are unable to reach hospitals for medical treatment amid the clashes.
