CAIRO (AP) — Residents are reporting that clashes between warring factions resumed in Sudan’s capital and a neighboring city after a three-day cease-fire expired. Sudan descended into conflict in mid-April after months of worsening tensions exploded into open fighting between rival generals seeking to control the African nation. The fresh clashes signal that U.S. and Saudi efforts to extend the truce period that ended Wednesday morning failed.
