U.S. discussing alleged violations of Sudan ceasefire -State Dept.

STORY: "We've obviously seen the reports (of breaches). The officials on the monitoring mechanism are looking into those reports," Miller said. "When we see violations of the ceasefire (we) make those known publicly as well as directly engage with both sides to the conflict."

The truce, reached on Saturday after five weeks of battles, appeared on Tuesday to have brought some relief from heavy fighting, although artillery fire could be heard in parts of Khartoum.

Miller told a news briefing that members of the ceasefire panel of Saudi and U.S. officials and representatives of the warring sides were discussing alleged ceasefire breaches with their chains of command and with Washington.
