The Sudanese daily al-Sahafa quoted the flood-fighting committee as warning against the spread of infectious diseases as a result of the pollution of potable water by water from the drainage system and called for providing donations of foodstuffs, medicines, tents, and potable water.
Sudanese airlines' planes had transported foodstuffs and other aid at a cost of 50 million Sudanese genie to Danqala, 450 km north of Khartoum and inhabited by 150,000 persons.
