According to a report by “Spiegel”, the Bundeswehr had to cancel an evacuation campaign on Wednesday. According to this, a good 150 Germans should have been flown out of Sudan. The action failed due to the ongoing fighting.

However, the federal government and other countries are planning a new attempt to bring Germans and other foreigners to safety from the fighting in the north-east African country. “It’s about finding a way to get people out quickly,” said Federal Defense Minister Boris Pistorius (SPD) on TV station Welt. According to him, the federal government is in contact with both parties to the conflict in Sudan.
