Mogadishu: The first group of Somali evacuees from Sudan have arrived in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia.
The 18 Somalis were received at the Aden Abdulle International Airport by Abdirahman Nur Dinari, acting permanent secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation on Wednesday.
The government is working to evacuate other nationals still stranded in Sudan or at borders with Ethiopia and South Sudan as soon as possible, Dinari told journalists as quoted by Xinhua news agency report.
The fighting between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, which broke out on April 15, has reportedly killed hundreds of people and injured thousands of others.
