Photo: abubakarr jalloh/AFP/Getty ImagesThe U.S. and other governments moved swiftly over the weekend to evacuate embassy staff from Sudan, where a battle for power between the country’s top two generals has now left millions of residents with the difficult choice of whether to try to sit out the clashes at home or attempt a risky escape. The rapid descent of the east African country—and especially its capital, Khartoum—into all-out war appeared to surprise many embassies, including the U.S. mission, which didn’t issue advisories for American citizens to leave the country before the fighting started on April 15.

Cross-border fighting has flared again in the bloody conflict pitting Ethiopia and its allies against rebels from the country’s Tigray region, threatening to destabilize a swath of East Africa as U.S. diplomats push to restart stalled peace negotiations. Tens of thousands of soldiers from Eritrea, which is backing Ethiopia’s government, have opened three new fronts in recent days, according to diplomats and analysts. Aid agencies say the fighting in the northern region of Tigray is the heaviest since hostilities resumed in August, with artillery and drone strikes destroying civilian infrastructure and cutting off deliveries of food to more than five million people.
