The United Nations warns that Sudan is in the midst of a horrific humanitarian catastrophe because of the eight-month long conflict between the Sovereign Council led by army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces led by Mohamed Hamdan Daglo. More than 12,000 people have been killed in the conflict, but that figure could be much higher, given parts of the country that are totally cut off from the outside world. There are also 7 million displaced persons.

The UN’s Humanitarian Coordinator for Sudan Clementine Nkweta-Salami in a Dec. 10 interview with AFP, published by Egypt’s Al Ahram, warned that while 25 million Sudanese are in need of aid, the UN can only provide for 4 million, but even that aid could soon stop for lack of funding, and called the situation “catastrophic.”
