Bodies pile up without burials in Sudan's capital, marooned by a relentless conflict

01 Oct 2023  |  kdow.biz
In Khartoum, Sudan, the ongoing conflict between the Sudanese Army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) has made it nearly impossible to conduct funerals, leaving corpses rotting in the streets. The conflict, which has lasted nearly four months, has resulted in over 3,000 deaths, with many more likely unreported. The RSF, controlling large parts of the city, often disrupts burial attempts, while the Sudanese Army's bombings have turned the city into a battlefield. Humanitarian organizations like the Red Crescent and Save the Children are struggling to manage the crisis, with many bodies remaining unburied and the rainy season threatening further health risks.
