Foreign governments evacuated diplomats, staff and citizens from Sudan on Sunday as rival generals battled for a ninth day.

The EU's foreign policy chief on Monday told reporters in Luxemburg that more than one thousand European citizens have been evacuated from Sudan, and that 21 people have already arrived in Europe.

Air forces from France, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain were among those to carry out evacuation operations in Sudan's capital of Khartoum over the weekend.
