Emergency summits on Sudan and Libya are to take place today in Egypt.
President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is the current president of the African Union, is hosting African leaders for discussions on "the evolution of the situation in Sudan" where President Omar al-Bashir was toppled after weeks of protest, the Egyptian presidency said in a statement seen by AFP.
They will also seek to "stem the current crisis" in Libya, where the internationally recognised government in Tripoli is under attack from forces loyal to General Khalifa Haftar from a rival authority based in the eastern city of Benghazi.
Among those due to attend today's talks are the presidents of Chad, Rwanda, Congo-Brazzaville, Somalia, Djibouti and South Africa, according to AFP.
