at least 100 dead in clashes between armed fighters
CAIRO — At least 100 people have been killed in clashes that erupted last month between armed fighters in a town in Sudan’s restive Darfur region, according to the Sudanese Doctors’ Union.
Hospitals are still out of service in the city of Geneva, Darfur, and an accurate count of the injured is still difficult to make, the doctors’ union added in a statement published Sunday evening on its official Facebook page.
The fighting in Geneva, which erupted days after Sudan’s two rival generals took up arms against each other in Khartoum, has underscored the possibility that the conflict in the capital could escalate to other parts of the East African countries.
At least 481 civilians were killed in clashes in Khartoum that erupted in mid-April between the army, led by General Abdel Fattah Burhan, and paramilitary rapid support forces, led by General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, according to the same press release from the doctors. The number of civilian injuries jumped to more than 2,560.
