Concerns are growing that the violence will lead to wider conflict.
Fighting in Sudan between forces loyal to the two generals threatens to turn into a protracted conflict.
The violence took place between Army chief Abdul Fattah al-Burhan and his deputy Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, also known as Hemedti, the paramilitary Rapid Support Force ( RSF) commanders – following a weeks-long power struggle.
Fears are growing that this could be the start of a wider conflict.
External forces further complicate the situation, with both sides receiving support from regional and global powers.
So how will this conflict affect Sudan’s future?
