Sudan crisis: More than 375 Canadians evacuated so far, situation ‘volatile’ – National

Defense Minister Anita Anand said Saturday that more than 375 Canadians have fled Sudan as the situation in the conflict-ridden African country remains “precarious and dangerous”.

Canada airlifted Canadians from Sudan in two military planes this week on Thursday, followed by two more evacuations of civilians on Friday.

At a virtual press conference, Anand said a fifth flight was planned for Saturday.

Sudan has been at war in recent weeks between its military and rival paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF).
