Sudan's military group leaders have agreed in principle to a truce from May 4 to 11

Sudan military faction chiefs agree May 4-11 truce in principle

In Khartoum: Sudan's fighting military groups settled on Tuesday on a fundamental level to a sevenday truce from Thursday, South Sudan declared, as more air strikes and shooting in the Khartoum locale disturbed the most recent transient ceasefire.

Astatement delivered by the unfamiliar service of South Sudan, which had proposed to intercede in the contention, said its Leader Salva Kiir focused on the significance of a more extended d├ętente and of naming emissaries to harmony talks, to which the two sides had concurred. Given the numerous violations that undermined previous agreements that lasted anywhere from 24 to 72 hours, it was unclear whether the ceasefire agreement that was reported to have been reached between paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) leader General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo and Sudanese army chief General Abdel Fattah alBurhan was credible.

UN officials stated earlier on Tuesday that the third week of fighting is creating a humanitarian crisis and that the war in Sudan has forced 1,00,000 people to flee across its borders. As Sudan's impoverished neighbors deal with a refugee crisis and fighting impedes aid delivery in a nation where two thirds of the population already rely on some outside assistance, the conflict runs the risk of expanding into a larger catastrophe. UN aid chief Martin Griffiths had planned to visit Sudan on Tuesday, according to UN officials, but the exact date had not been determined.
