CAIRO (AP) — Sudan’s army and its rival paramilitary say they will extend a humanitarian cease-fire another 72 hours as of midnight. The decision follows international pressure to allow the safe passage of civilians and aid, but also comes after days of continued fighting despite the earlier truce. In statements on Sunday, both sides accused the other of violations. The extension comes as civilians continue to flee the fighting and aid groups try to get badly needed supplies into the violence-marred country. The conflict erupted on April 15 between the nation’s army and its paramilitary force, and threatens to thrust Sudan into a raging civil war.
