16 killed in Khartoum air, artillery strikes

Air strikes and artillery barrages from Sudan’s warring generals killed at least 16 people in a Khartoum neighbourhood yesterday.

After more than 100 days of war, the latest bombardments added to a toll of at least 3,900 killed nationwide.

“Sixteen citizens died today in this senseless war” when shells hit civilian homes in the Ombada area of Khartoum’s northwest, a neighbourhood group said.

It is one of many pro-democracy “resistance committees” that have cobbled together supplies over the patchy internet, land lines, or by risking their own lives to venture out since the war began.

The total number of casualties from the latest strikes was still unclear, the committee added.
