Dozens dead, ceasefire urged as Sudan battles rage for second day

The deadly conflict between Sudan’s army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in the capital Khartoum has killed at least 56 people and wounded hundreds, arousing international communities to urge a ceasefire and worry about further escalation.Violence erupted early Saturday morning after weeks of deepening tensions between army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and his deputy, Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, commander of the large and heavily-armed paramilitary RSF, with each accusing the other of starting the fight.

This is the first such outbreak since both joined forces to oust president Omar Hassan al-Bashir in 2019.
