As Sudan’s rival generals on Wednesday made a new attempt at a 24-hour cease-fire after a failed truce the night before, Khartoum residents tried to stock up on water and other basic essentials.

Residents carried empty barrels and plastic containers through the capital to fill up with water from a tank.
