Map of Sudan

Sudan is the third largest country in Africa with over 45 million people. Seven other countries border Sudan. It has a lot of natural resources, the Nile River runs through the country, and it has a coastline on the Red Sea. The country is rich in mineral resources.

The country of Sudan has been a conflict area for decades. 2023 is no exception, with the beginning of 2023 seeing a battle between two completing generals and their armies.

Conflict in Sudan

One month before the military government was to transition to civilian rule a conflict broke out between two generals - each attempting to take control of the entire country. As of late April the country was in turmoil and hundreds of people had been killed.
