Sudan is on the brink of collapse as forces loyal to two rival generals are battling for control of the resource-rich North African nation.

The ongoing conflict has left hundreds of people dead, thousands more wounded and hundreds of thousands displaced, according to figures from the United Nations. It has also prompted a number of countries, including the United States, to evacuate personnel from Sudan and shutter diplomatic missions there indefinitely.

Jok Madut Jok, professor of anthropology, says the conflict "has been a long time coming." He weighs in on the crisis, the history of the situation, the regional implications and the staggering toll the fighting has taken in several interviews.
