On the second day of a three-day truce, fighting continues but has reduced enough for civilians to seek food and water. Tens of thousands have fled the capital of Khartoum to try and cross to Saudi Arabia. Some foreign governments continue to airlift their citizens out of the country.  Nearly 500 people have been killed and over 4,000 injured as the fighting between the Sudan military and the Rapid Support Forces is expected to continue.  Newsmax reported concerns that RSF leader Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo is backed by Russia and the Wagner Group. Dagalo reportedly visited Russia last year just before the invasion of Ukraine. The report claims that if the RSF takes control of Sudan, the country’s resources will be diverted to help Russia in its war with Ukraine.
