American diplomats and their families have been evacuated from Sudan as fighting between rival factions has intensified.

Reuters reports that the process involved half a dozen aircraft, and was “carried out in coordination with” the Rapid Support Forces. According to earlier reporting, 70 personnel were to be evacuated — though many Americans remain in Sudan.
