Gunfire shots and explosions have been heard today Saturday, April 15 in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum due to clashes erupting between the Sudanese army and its paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) following tensions between the two.
With a rival spanning months, the rising tension between the two groups is rapidly turning into a battle over who controls one of Africa’s most important countries.
The battle has circulated across various areas of Khartoum including the presidential palace, the headquarters of the state broadcaster, and the international airport.
Egyptian airline, EgyptAir has also announced that for the next three days, they will not be receiving flights from Khartoum until the situation in Sudan calms.
Reports have announced that the death toll is currently three civilians; two were killed at the country’s airport and another man was shot dead in the state of North Kordofan.
