Despite the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) declaring they were ready to follow a three-day ceasefire with the army to coincide with the Muslim holiday of Eid, sporadic fighting is still occurring in the capital of Sudan, Khartoum.

The UN and several countries have been trying to persuade the two sides to agree to a truce.

The RSF said it had been forced to act in “self-defence” to repel what it described as a coup attempt – but it would abide by the truce.

The army chief, Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, made no mention of a ceasefire in a pre-recorded speech that has been posted on the army’s Facebook page.

He said he remained committed to restoring Sudan to civilian rule, and called for everyone to abide by the slogan “One army, One people”.
