Two warring factions of Sudan’s military have announced a 72-hour ceasefire coinciding with the start of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr. Despite the announcement, residents of Sudan’s capital Khartoum and neighboring cities report gunfire and shelling have continued. The World Health Organization reports at least 413 people have been killed and more than 3,500 others injured in the week since fighting erupted between Sudan’s army and the Rapid Support Forces paramilitary group. Earlier today, Sudan’s top general and de facto ruler Abdel Fattah al-Burhan made his first public remarks since the fighting broke out.
