Cease-Fire In Sudan Fails; Fighting Continues

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Despite an agreed upon 24-hour cease fire brokered by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the Sudanese military and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have continued fighting for a fifth day in what is becoming another civil war. Hundreds of people have been seeing fleeing the capital of Khartoum and other major cities as explosions and weapons fire are exchanged in residential neighborhoods. The U.N. estimates that nearly 300 people have been killed and more than 3,000 injured as the rival factions seemed determined to battle out their differences rather than negotiate.
