A massive sandstorm swept through the Sudanese capital Khartoum on June 1, 2017, turning day into night and burying several homes.
The storm has brought vast amounts of sand and dust into the city, burying several homes and severely limiting visibility, CGTN reported.
"Ecosystems and natural resources in the country have been deteriorating due to climate change. Water supplies are scarce and severe droughts are common. After years of desertification, the country's rich biodiversity is under threat and drought has hindered the fight against hunger," the paper said.
