Violence erupted between Sudans main paramilitary group and the armed forces yesterday in an apparent struggle for control against the backdrop of the countrys halting moves toward elections after a military coup.
Amid conflicting reports from the two sides, the army rejected assertions by the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) that they had seized the presidential palace, army chiefs residence and airports in Khartoum and the northern city of Merowe.
Doctors confirmed three deaths but said many more civilians had been killed and wounded in the clashes that shook residential neighbourhoods of the capital.
Eyewitnesses reported shooting in adjoining cities.
A Reuters journalist saw cannon and armoured vehicles deployed on the capitals streets and heard heavy weapons fire near the headquarters of both the army and RSF.
Fighting was also taking place at the headquarters of Sudans state TV, according to an onair anchor.
The army said the Sudanese air force was conducting operations against the RSF.
