Canadian military personnel, including special forces members, have been deployed to Sudan to assist with the evacuation of Canadian citizens as the country experiences a brutal conflict between rival military leaders. The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) task force comprises both regular forces and special forces members who have also been tasked with force protection efforts. More than 11 days into the crisis, 100 Canadians have been evacuated from the country out of the 573 who have requested assistance. Fighting broke out on April 15 between the Sudanese Armed Forces and a paramilitary organization known as the Rapid Support Forces.
