The statement comes, after reports that prisoners at Kober prison which held Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, and other top deputies, had staged a break earlier this week.

 

It was not immediately clear if Bashir, who has spent extended periods in a military hospital, was at the prison.

 

Sudanese and foreigners fled Khartoum on Tuesday as fighting followed a three-day truce.

Sudan bloody fight 

A series of short ceasefires in the past week, have either failed or brought only short pauses in fighting, between forces loyal to the country’s two top generals since April 15.

 

According to the UN, which have cited Sudan’s Health Ministry, at least 450, people have been killed,  in the fighting including civilians.


 

Aid agencies have warned over a humanitarian situation, in a country reliant on outside help.

 

In addition to endangering Sudan’s future, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, warned that the struggle for power between rival generals and their military forces ,was “lighting a fuse that could detonate across the borders, causing immense suffering for years and setting development back by decades.”

 

He urged the Sudanese military commanded by Gen. Abdel Fattah Burhan, and the rival Rapid Support Forces, a paramilitary group led by Gen. Mohamed Dagalo, “to silence the guns” immediately.

 

On April 15, violent clashes between the Sudanese regular armed forces and the powerful RSF broke out.

The military accused the RSF of mutiny and launched airstrikes against their bases.
