Children Killed at Darfur Hospital as Fighting Intensifies in Sudan’s El Fasher

HeadlineMay 13, 2024

In Sudan, Doctors Without Borders says two children were killed and others were injured overnight Sunday when a bomb fell outside a pediatric hospital in the western city of El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur. Also on Sunday, there were reports of another 27 deaths in El Fasher as the Sudanese army clashed with the RSF — Rapid Support Forces — as fears mount of possible “carnage” in the last major stronghold of the army. Some 800,000 internally displaced people have taken refuge in El Fasher, which was once thought to be relatively shielded from the war.
