UN Security Council meets on Sudan crisis

UN Logo
The UN Security Council met behind closed doors yesterday to discuss the crisis in Sudan after Khartoum’s military rulers announced plans to hold elections following a crackdown that killed nearly 40 people.

Germany and Britain requested the urgent talks amid international alarm over the violence in Khartoum where security forces broke up weeks of protests against military rule.

The German diplomat dismissed a plan by Sudan’s military council to conduct elections within nine months, arguing that conditions were not in place for holding nationwide polls.

The military council has ruled the country since the ouster of President Omar Al Bashir on April 11, following months of protests against his authoritarian rule.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday condemned the use of excessive force by Sudan’s security agents and said he was “alarmed” by reports that forces had opened fire inside a hospital.
