Fighting flares in South Darfur amid fears of new civil war

Violence flared in the western Sudanese city of Nyala and elsewhere in the state of South Darfur on Sunday. This is threatening to engulf the region in Sudan’s protracted war. According to Reuters the conflict has brought daily battles to the streets of the capital of Khartoum. This is a revival of ethnically targeted attacks in West Darfur, and the displacement of more than 4 million people within Sudan and across its borders into Chad, Egypt, South Sudan and other countries.
