Sudan crisis: Warring sides meet in Jeddah as fighting continues
Multiple ceasefires have been broken and not respected since a violent war broke out between the Sudanese Army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF).
The Sudanese Doctors Union said the fighting had killed at least 700 people, many of whom are civilians, wounded thousands and led to millions of Sudanese and foreigners fleeing the country.
Many have fled to Chad, Egypt and South Sudan for safety, while others fled to Port Sudan and were then taken across the Red Sea to Saudi Arabia.
In Khartoum, residents remain trapped in their homes and makeshift shelters with little food, medicine and water as fighter jets pummel the city.
Meanwhile, representatives of the warring parties continue to meet in Jeddah to negotiate a humanitarian ceasefire so that aid can be delivered to the besieged population.
But both sides have said little about the progress of their talks since Saturday and blamed each other for breaking previous truces.
Army spokesperson Brigadier General Nabil Abdalla said the talks aimed to discuss how the truce "can be correctly implemented to serve the humanitarian side".
The RSF has not commented on the talks, but its leader, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, said he welcomed the discussions.
Saudi Arabia and the United States have supported talks and demanded an end to the conflict.
Fighting began between the army and the RSF after they disagreed on delivering civilian rule in Sudan following the removal of longtime leader Omar Bashir in 2019.
Both sides have attempted to present themselves as protectors of Sudan's democratic values, despite ousting the country's civilian-led transitional government.
