Amid the ongoing violence in Sudan as rival military factions vye for power, the United Nations has announced it will evacuate some of its staff, APA reports citing Sputnik.
Much of the international community has called for a ceasefire between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) group.
"We will have to evacuate some of our staff, non-essential staff [and] relatives" from Sudan, UN Special Representative Volker Perthes, who also heads the UN mission in Sudan, told journalists on Monday.
According to Perthes, at least 180 people have been killed in the country and more than 1,800 individuals have sustained injuries in recent days.
That violence hasn’t been restricted to Sudanese locals, either: on Monday, the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, revealed the EU ambassador to Sudan had been assaulted in his home.
