U.S. FINALLY starts evacuating citizens from Sudan:


A convoy left Khartoum late Friday on a lengthy journey to safety

Armed drones reportedly monitored its progress through war-torn Sudan

The country has been hit by fierce fighting as two rival generals vie for power 

Buses carrying about 300 Americans left the war-torn capital of Sudan late Friday, after Washington came under intense pressure to explain why other countries had rescued their nationals but thousands of U.S. citizens remained without help.

It came as Khartoum continued to rock with the sound of explosions despite a tentative ceasefire, and foreign leaders tried to broker a fresh truce.

The U.S. convoy reportedly set off late Friday on a lengthy journey to a safe location.
