A battle for control between rival forces in Sudan has turned deadly and sparked international alarm. Hundreds have been wounded in the fighting between the military and a paramilitary force.

Over 60 people have died and hundreds more have been injured in two days of fighting.
The Sudanese military and the paramilitary Rapid Support Force agree to a 3-hour pause in fighting to allow civilians to evacuate.
Neighboring Egypt, South Sudan offer to mediate between the warring generals.

At least 61 people have been killed and dozens others were injured as Sudan’s armed forces (SAF) battled the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) for control of the country for a second day, according to the Sudanese Doctors’ Union.

The doctor’s syndicate also said some 600 people were wounded in the fighting that broke out on Saturday.

Fighting continued into Sunday in the capital Khartoum and other parts of the country after months of tensions erupted between two rival military leaders.

The sound of heavy firing could be heard as the military urged people to remain inside their homes. Schools, banks and government offices would be closed on Sunday.

Both sides claim they control key airports and other installations.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres spoke to the military leader Abdel-Fattah Burhan and RSF leader General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, calling for an immediate end to violence and a return to dialogue.

Burhan overthrew long-term ruler Omar al-Bashir in April 2019. Eighteen months later, the military and the RSF staged a second coup, upending a transition to democracy.
