Sudan military condemns shooting of child protesters in school uniforms


The head of Sudan’s ruling military council has said there must be immediate accountability over the shooting dead of at least four school children on Monday in El-Obeid , state news agency SUNA has reported.

“What happened in El-Obeid is a regrettable and upsetting matter and the killing of peaceful citizens is unacceptable and rejected and a crime that requires immediate and deterrent accountability,” Abdel Fattah al-Burhan was quoted as saying.
