The conflict between rival armed groups in Sudan has entered its second month, despite Washington-backed ceasefire talks continuing in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah, according to Rt News.

At least 833 people have been killed and 3,329 others injured since fighting between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces began on April 15, according to the Sudan Doctors Union.
