(USNS Brunswick has arrived in Port Sudan to assist with the evacuation effort)

Armed drones escorted hundreds of Americans as they began their escape from war-torn Sudan on Saturday amid fierce fighting between the military and a rival paramilitary group.

The unmanned aerial vehicles flew above a convoy of buses as they made the 500-mile journey from the Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, to Port Sudan on the east coast, a U.S. official familiar with the matter confirmed. Several hundred Americans were on at least a dozen buses, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly.
