A yellow fever outbreak has killed nearly 100 people over the last seven weeks in Sudan's Darfur, the World Health Organisation said, a region where fighting has undermined access to healthcare. The statement said 329 suspected yellow fever cases and 97 deaths had been reported since the last week of September.
