Sudanese military fighter jets are continuing with air strikes in the capital Khartoum and the adjacent cities of Bahri and Omdurman, despite ceasefire talks taking place in Saudi Arabia.
Ground battles are also taking place between the army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in two areas in the centre of Bahri – Shambat and Halfiya.
The fighting has left people terrified, forcing them to hide in their homes.
But many people are still hopeful that the talks in Saudi Arabia – the first between the warring sides – would lead to a ceasefire
The special envoy of Sudan’s army chief Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan has also met South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir to discuss ways to end the war in Khartoum.
President Kiir was chosen by the regional bloc, IGAD, to spearhead mediation efforts to end the fighting between Sudan’s army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF).
