Sudan’s Army Suspends Participation in Ceasefire Talks

HeadlineMay 31, 2023

The talks in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, aimed to protect and bring much needed humanitarian aid to the civilian population. The war has forcibly displaced 1.4 million people in the past six weeks, while the U.N. says some 25 million people — over half the population — need assistance.
