Sudan protest group rejects UN offer to talk to army
CAIRO (AP) – A leading Sudanese protest group on Sunday rejected a United Nations move to hold talks with the military aimed at restoring the country’s democratic transition after the October coup. Meanwhile, at least one protester has been killed when security forces violently dispersed anti-coup protests in the capital, activists said.
The move is a blow to international efforts to end the political stalemate in Sudan and suggests that the incessant street protests are likely to continue. More than 60 people have been killed since the military takeover.
