A 72-hour ceasefire started in Sudan on Monday night, the third so far in the deadly conflict that broke out ten days ago. As Sudanese keep struggling with disrupted water, electricity, and internet services, the first group of Chinese nationals was evacuated to neighboring countries.

The fighting between the Sudan Armed Forces and the paramilitary group the Rapid Support Forces has left at least 420 dead and 3,700 injured. Sudan’s airports remain closed as foreign powers evacuate their citizens using truck convoys. Meanwhile, thousands of Sudanese are fleeing, some by foot.
