At least 11 people were killed and dozens injured Sunday in air strikes on a neighbourhood in the south of Sudan’s capital Khartoum, a local group said. “At about 7:15 am (0515 GMT), military aircraft bombarded the Qouro market area,” said the local resistance committee, one of the groups that used to organise pro-democracy protests and now provides assistance during the war.
“A preliminary count indicates that 11 deaths and dozens of wounded arrived” at Bashair hospital, the committee said. The hospital meanwhile issued an “urgent appeal” for all medical professionals in the area to come and help treat the “increasing number of injured people arriving”. Since April 15, Sudan has been gripped by a devastating war pitting the regular army against the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces.
