Egypt dispatches more humanitarian aid to flood-stricken Sudan

 One more batch of humanitarian aid was sent from Egypt to Sudan on Wednesday to help the country amid  heavy floods that have killed at least 100 people and left more than 100,000  homeless.

An Egyptian military plane carrying a large quantities of foodstuffs and medical supplies has taken off from Cairo to Khartoum airport, the Egyptian military spokesman said on Wednesday.
 
The new batch came in light of the directive of the Egyptian president Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to intensify the airlift Egypt has expanded to help the flood-stricken country, he added.
