KHARTOUM APRIL 22: People across the globe are celebrating the holy festival of Eid Al-Fitr, the world celebrates this holy festival, but for the people in Sudan the situation is very different. The country is on the boil for almost two weeks now.

Some foreign nationals began evacuating from Sudan on Saturday after a week of strife that has killed hundreds of civilians. The airport has been repeatedly targeted and many residents have been unable to leave their homes or get out of the city to safer areas.

With the airport closed and skies unsafe, thousands of foreigners – including embassy staff, aid workers and students in Khartoum and elsewhere in Africa’s third largest country – have also been unable to get out.

The Sudanese doctors union said on Saturday that more than two thirds of hospitals in conflict areas were out of service, with 32 forcibly evacuated by soldiers or caught in crossfire.

The Swedish Government wants to send a Swedish armed force to Sudan to assist in an evacuation of Swedish citizens in the country. The force must be able to carry out protection, rescue and evacuation efforts on its own and together with other partners if the need arises, says Swedish Defense Minister Pål Jonson.

WHO spokesperson told a UN press conference that according to figures from the government in Sudan, 413 people have died and 3,551 have been injured in the conflict. The death toll is expected to rise.
