Sudanese doctors’ union says at least 17 people were killed and 106 others wounded after rockets hit a market south of the capital Khartoum.

Report says this is the largest number of people killed by shelling in an attack around the capital since fighting between the Sudanese army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, RSF started on April 15.

The attack came as talks, brokered by the US and Saudi Arabia to end the conflict, collapsed.

“The Mayo area Market 6 witnessed violent and bloody shelling this afternoon, which left 17 people dead and more than 106 wounded,” the Sudanese Doctors’ Syndicate said in a post on its Facebook page.

It brings the civilian death toll in the conflict to 883.
