Clashes Resume In Sudan As 24-Hour Ceasefire Ends

Shelling and gunfire resumed Sunday in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, after the end of a 24-hour ceasefire.

The fighting has raged in the northeast African country since mid-April, when army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and his former deputy Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, who commands the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), turned on each other.

The latest in a series of ceasefire agreements allowed civilians trapped in the capital Khartoum to venture outside and stock up on food and other essential supplies. Witnesses told AFP that only 10 minutes after it ended at 6:00 am (0400 GMT) on Sunday, the capital was rocked again by shelling and clashes.

Heavy artillery fire was reported in Khartoum and its twin city Omdurman to the north, and fighting also erupted on Al-Hawa Street, a major artery in the south of the capital.

Multiple truces have been agreed and broken, even after the United States had slapped sanctions on both rival generals after the previous attempt collapsed at the end of May.
