Iran has thanked Saudi Arabia for helping its citizens in Sudan evacuate across the Red Sea to the Saudi port city of Jeddah.
65 Iranians were among around 1,900 people evacuated from Sudan to Saudi Arabia on Saturday (29 April) as fighting between the Sudenese army and the rival paramilitary group, the Rapid Support Forces, entered its third week.
Fighting is continuing in parts of Sudan despite a 72-hour ceasefire between the Sudanese army and the rival paramilitary group the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) larging holding.
The current ceasefire began at midnight local time on Monday, pausing a conflict which erupted on Sunday 15 April amid a power struggle between the leaders of the army and the RSF.
