Qatar Airways, a biggest air carrier in the Middle East, has suspended flights to Sudan, News.Az reports citing the Qatar News Agency.
According to the agency, the move followed the closure of the Khartoum international airport.
The situation in Sudan has escalated due to disagreement between army commander Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who also heads the Sovereign Council (the country's governing body), and his deputy in the council, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo (Hemedti), the head of the rapid support force. On the morning of April 15, clashes broke out between the two forces near a military base in the city of Merowe and in the Sudanese capital Khartoum.
