Sources said that by Sunday morning, everyone had left the US embassy in Sudan.
Because of the fighting in Sudan, American military officials have pulled U.S. embassy staff out of the country, according to Fox News.
A source told Fox News that the escape happened early on Sunday morning. Diplomats and their families were able to get out of Sudan and the main city, Khartoum.
Sudan is in the middle of a civil war, so the military is working with other countries to get leaders out of the country.
On April 15, a fight broke out between Sudan’s normal troops and the militia Rapid Support troops (RSF). According to the World Health Organization, at least 413 people have died and up to 3,551 have been hurt.
Someone told Reuters that the plan to get rid of the Americans was made by the RSF and the Americans working together.
People from other countries left the country earlier Saturday through a port in Sudan on the Red Sea.
Even though a wave of violence had shut down Khartoum’s airport and left a lot of people in the city, the evacuations still happened. Not only can thousands of people from other countries not leave, but so can thousands of Sudanese.
Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said on Friday that American troops were put near Sudan to keep people safe.
Austin said, “We always want to make sure we’re planning wisely, which is what we’re doing.” “We’ve sent some troops to the area so that if we’re asked to do something, we have as many options as possible. Nobody has asked us to do anything so far.”
One American died during the fight. The unnamed American did not work at the U.S. Embassy.
A State Department representative told Fox News, “We can confirm that one U.S. citizen died in Sudan.” “We’re in touch with the family and want them to know how sorry we are for their loss. We don’t have anything else to say because we want to show the family respect during this difficult time.”
