Which countries are evacuating citizens from Sudan?


NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Hundreds of foreign nationals have been safely evacuated from Sudan where continued fighting threatens to plunge the African country deeper into chaos.

Britain deployed hundreds of soldiers from its key airbase in the Cyprus to evacuate its diplomatic staff out of Khartoum.

Nonetheless, many countries are ramping up efforts to get their people out.
