Heavy gunfire rocked Sudan's capital, Khartoum, after clashes started between a paramilitary force -the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) - and the army on Saturday.

An interesting point is that the fighting comes less than two days after Khalifa Haftar's son, Siddik, arrived in Sudan for talks with the RSF commander.

The country saw days of tension as the two strong military men, Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who heads the armed forces and -in effect- the country's president, and his deputy/ leader of the RSF, Gen Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, better known as Hemedti, disagreed on the road map to a civilian rule.

Siddik Haftar's visit came at a time mediators were telling the media that the crisis between the two leaders was on its way to a solution.

At least three people died, and eight others were wounded since the fighting started this morning.

Amid the continued violence, online videos showed a sunset scene marred with black smoke over the capital as people were getting ready to break their fasting in the holy month of Ramadan.
