A lawyer of former Sudanese president, Omar al-Bashir, has said his client has been moved from a hospital where he has been since war broke out in the country in April last year to “a secure military site”.

Mohamed al-Hassan al-Amin told Sudan Tribune news website that the former leader, alongside four others, have been transferred from the Medical Corps after health care there “ran out completely”.

Mr Bashir, who had been convicted for corruption and was facing trial for leading a military coup in 1989, was receiving treatment at a military hospital in Omdurman city that came under siege by the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

Sudan’s regional and international partners have failed to mediate between the army and RSF throughout the war that has killed at least 14,000 people and displaced about 10 million others.
