Sudan fighting spreads to World Heritage Site

GEZIRA, Sudan: Sudan’s devastating nine-month war between two rival generals is spreading to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, an NGO reported late Tuesday, sounding the alarm for the remains of the ancient Kingdom of Kush.
The Regional Network for Cultural Rights said it “strongly condemns the incursion by the Rapid Support Forces (RSF),” the paramilitary forces of general Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, “on the sites of Naqa and Musawwarat es-Sufra.”
RSF forces have been fighting against troops loyal to Sudanese army chief Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan since April last year.
