South Sudan leading mediation efforts to end the conflict in Sudan, says the head of the paramilitary rapid support forces, has not responded to a proposal to extend the ceasefire to Sunday. Foreign minister Deng Dau Deng said that the leader of RSF, general Hamdan Dagalo has also not answered calls for face-to-face talks, while expressing hopes that he will respond positively to the request. A statement from Sudan’s army said its leader general Abdel Fattah Al-burhan had given initial approval to the request, as the ceasefire between the Sudanese army and the rapid support force is due to end at midnight local time today. Meanwhile, Sudan’s health ministry says the number of people killed in the clashes between the army and RSF is 512, with another 4,193 injured.
