Sudan rocked by fighting and airstrikes despite ceasefire

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Fighting and airstrikes have continued inside Sudan despite a week-long ceasefire, although humanitarian missions have managed to deliver some urgently needed aid.

The UN says around 300,000 Sudanese people have fled to neighbouring countries since the conflict began, 90,000 of them to Chad. And almost a third of that number have arrived there in the last week alone.
