A man who lives in Ballymena, County Antrim has said he will remain in Sudan despite being caught up in the violent clashes in the country.

The 50 Irish evacuees left on French and Spanish planes, as part of a joint European Union effort to aid EU citizens who are stranded.

Violent clashes have been taking place in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum between the regular army and a paramilitary force called the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

The Irish government has advised the remaining Irish citizens in Sudan "to shelter in place and follow local restrictions" unless they get updated information from the Irish embassy in Kenya.
