A student at the University of Khartoum was killed after a bullet hit him during the ongoing fighting in the capital of Sudan.

An information published on the Facebook page, verified by the BBC, shows that the body was buried in the school premises after there was no security guarantee to go out.

Ten students were stuck in the country because of the incident.

"We buried our friend after receiving approval from his family and the school board. We are planning to go get food for the other students," a law student who lives in a building near the school told the BBC.

"There were three of us, but the bullet hit him in the chest. We couldn't help him. While we were trying to bury our friend, one of us was also hit in the hand by the bullet."

Both the army and the RSF are claiming control of key areas in Khartoum, where residents are sheltering from explosives and gunfire.

"We fear both sides, the army and the RSF fighters, if they shoot right where we are."

The student also added that the rest of the students were sleeping in a nearby mosque, when the flames fell on the building and injured two people.

"We are in the middle of a terrible fire. There are many weapons attacks around us that are falling on houses.

In another video circulating on social media, a student described how ten students were sleeping on the floor in a school library.

"There are about 88 of us, including 20 workers, some of them are seniors. The situation is really bad," he said.

"We can't do anything, we don't have anything when the airplanes are flying in the sky. We are afraid of the interruption of electricity and drinking water."

He also continued to say that food and drinking water are getting scarce but no one wants to risk his life to leave the building.

A Nigerian student in the city of Khartoum, who did not want to be named, told the BBC that she managed to get out but "she has never found herself in this situation in her life."

"We woke up to the sound of gunshots, it's very scary, we are in fear," she said, when she escaped from her place of residence, and was told that she got into a bus take people to a more protected place.

She also said that she was able to talk to her parents who are worried.

"I talked to my mother yesterday but she kept hearing gunshots from my phone."

Schools and universities are calling on humanitarian organizations to help evacuate tens of people and students who are stuck.

But Ghazali Babiker, the acting director of Médecins Sans Frontières in Sudan, said that the aid organizations themselves have been cut off from providing aid.

"The way this war is happening, no one can go out and walk on the street, everyone is stuck where they are," he said.
