  • Sudan: Fighting continues after 2nd ceasefire attempt fails

    Fighting continues in Sudan in spite of a second declared ceasefire agreement. Millions of people have been trapped in their homes since the violence broke out almost a week ago between warring military groups. The two rival generals had apparently agreed to temporarily halt the fighting so humanitarian aid could get to those who need it but sporadic fighting continued across the country. FRANCE 24's Camille Knight tells us more.

He says that this time around there is a clear framework in place for the ceasefire, which comes into effect this evening, with an international oversight committee to oversee it. However, he warns that if the truce holds, it is for humanitarian reasons only, and it does not provide as yet any concrete basis for longer-term peace talks. He spoke to us in Perspective.
