BY A STAFF REPORTER: More than 20 people were killed on Sunday in shelling at a market in a suburb of Sudan's capital Khartoum, a committee of pro-democracy lawyers said in a statement.

It was the latest bloodiest fight between army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and his former deputy Mohammed Hamdan Dgalo, the commander of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), since April.

A statement from the committee of pro-democracy lawyers said the incident took place during a fierce exchange of fire between the two sides in Omdurman's market.

"More than 20 civilians were killed and many more wounded," the statement said. The committee monitors human rights violations and its civilian victims during the conflict. '
