Egypt has sent humanitarian aid to South Sudan upon the orders of army chief and defence minister Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.

A C130 military plane set off from an Egyptian military base on Friday morning carrying eight tonnes of food and medical supplies.

Fighting erupted in South Sudan on Sunday between rival factions of soldiers after a failed coup attempt against President Kiir.

Egypt is a leader in Africa
This was a good thing - Egypt has to continue to maintain its position as a leader in Africa - we cannot forget our less fortunate African brothers and sisters.
