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.
