Gunshots could be heard in the background of a news bulletin on state-run Sudan TV.
The channel halted a news bulletin after the presenter began reading an item about the situation in Khartoum.
"We hear gunshots and explosions and we are safe here in the studio," the presenter said before the programme abruptly ended and switched to songs about unity, peace and patriotism.
Lyrics including "let us remain as one" and "the skin colour is the same, the dialect is the same" were broadcast by the network.
The fighting that has erupted in the capital, Khartoum, and elsewhere in the country is a direct result of a vicious power struggle within the country's military leadership.
