The UN human rights chief has urged the two warring generals in Sudan to stop sexual violence and spare the lives of civilians.

Volker Turk described the conflict as heart-breaking.

He called on Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo to stop what he called the senseless violence immediately.

There has been a reduction in the fighting since a ceasefire came into effect on Monday.
