19 Killed, 100+ Injured as Shells Fall on Market Near Sudan’s Capital

HeadlineJun 01, 2023

In Sudan, at least 19 people were killed and more than 100 injured as shells fired from a tank hit a market in a neighborhood south of Khartoum. The deadly violence came after Sudan’s army said it was abandoning U.S.- and Saudi-brokered ceasefire talks with the rival Rapid Support Forces paramilitary group. On Wednesday, the U.N.'s World Food Programme said aid workers had been able to reach civilians in the Khartoum metropolitan area for the first time since fighting broke out on April 15. The WFP says Sudan's conflict could increase the number of people facing food insecurity by about 2.5 million in the coming months.
