UN representatives have warned of a “catastrophe” if the fighting does not stop.
“Even before the current crisis, a third of Sudan’s population, nearly 16 million people, was already in need of humanitarian aid. About 3.7 million people were internally displaced, most of them in Darfur,” said Abdou Dieng, UN humanitarian aid coordinator in Sudan.
Another 334,000 people were displaced in Sudan.
Fighting continues in the capital Khartoum, between the army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), despite a truce that was supposed to come into force.
On Tuesday, South Sudan’s foreign ministry said the army and the RSF had agreed “in principle” to a new seven-day truce starting May 4, and promised to send representatives to the talks.
More than 500 people have been killed and more than 4,000 injured in the fighting, according to the Sudanese Ministry of Health.
