star this property answer text <p>The UK is extremely concerned by the use of live ammunition by Sudanese security forces against protestors in Khartoum on 13 and 15 May, and by reports of injuries and fatalities. We call for those responsible to be held to account. Since protests began in December 2018, the UK has consistently raised our concerns at the use of violence in response to peaceful protests. As part of the Troika (US, UK and Norway) we made a statement on 21 May calling for a swift, orderly and peaceful civilian-led transfer of power that respects the will of the Sudanese people.</p> more like this
