Fighting continues to rage between government troops and rebel militia forces in Sudan, despite efforts to impose a ceasefire.

And this programme has heard increasing reports of civilians being murdered and raped, along with large scale looting.

Rapid Support Forces fighters have claimed control of a key military base in the capital Khartoum – while in western Darfur, more civilians are being killed in the city of El Geneina, scene of some of the worst violence in the country.
