A unilateral ceasefire declared by the head of Sudan’s paramilitary Rapid Support Forces is due to come into effect today for the Muslim holiday of Eid-al-Adha, which starts on Wednesday.

The pause in the conflict with the Sudanese army was announced in an audio recording broadcast on Al Arabiya television by the leader of the RSF, Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo, better known as Hemedti.

He said it would be in force on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Gen Hemedti also condemned abuses carried out against civilians – including those perpetrated by his own forces.

The RSF has been accused of being behind violations in Darfur.
