Background Behind Military Power Struggle in Sudan

 The New York Times published on 15 April 2023 an article titled "Rival Generals Unleash Fighting in Sudan, Dashing Dreams of Democracy" by Declan Walsh.

The Washington Post published on 16 April 2023 an article titled "69 Civilians Killed in Sudan as Military and Rival Group Fight for Control" by Katharine Houreld and John Hudson.  

The articles in the two newspapers provide useful background on the struggle between the Sudan Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces to control Sudan, ending any immediate hope for a democratic transition in the country.
