CAIRO (AP) — An aid group says heavy artillery fire killed at least 11 people and wounded 90 in a major city in conflict-torn Sudan. Doctors Without Borders said the attack took place in the city of Omdurman, just next to the capital of Khartoum, on Thursday but did not say which of the country’s warring parties was responsible. It said that children were among the dead. The group, also known by its French acronym MSF, says the wounded are being treated at Al Nao hospital in Omdurman. It’s one of several facilities where the medical group operates. Sudan has been rocked since mid-April by fighting between the country’s military and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces.
