UN and AU warn of ‘grave danger’ in Sudan
On Thursday Two protesters were shot dead during protests in Sudan as UN and African Union officials warned that the country was in “grave danger.”
Hundreds took to the streets across Khartoum and its twin city of Omdurman, witnesses said.
Security forces shot dead one protester in Omdurman and another in Khartoum, pro-democracy doctors said.
At least 87 people have been killed and hundreds wounded during more than four months of protests demanding civilian rule and justice for those killed in previous demonstrations, according to medics.
“All indicators available to us at the UN and AU show that the country is in grave danger,” said African Union envoy Mohamed Lebatt at a joint news conference in Khartoum with UN special representative Volker Perthes.
