Sudan: Ministry accuses RSF of storming AU office

Sudan’s Foreign Ministry, on Tuesday, accused the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) of storming and vandalising the African Union (AU) office in Khartoum.

“The Rapid Support Forces entered the headquarters of the African Union Liaison Office in Riyadh neighbourhood in Khartoum, vandalised the offices, destroyed documents and stole its contents,” the ministry said in a statement.

It condemned “the terrorist and criminal behaviour of the rebel militia,” calling on the international community and the AU to condemn the RSF in the strongest terms.

It also wants the international community to label RSF as a terrorist organisation.

Sudan is witnessing deadly armed clashes between the Sudanese Army and the RSF in the capital city of Khartoum and other areas since April 15.

The two sides are accusing each other of initiating the conflict.

According to UN statistics, thousands of Sudanese citizens have been displaced or forced to seek refuge in safe areas in neighbouring countries, including Egypt, Ethiopia and Chad.

So far, the deadly clashes have left 550 people dead and 4,926 others wounded, according to the Sudanese health ministry.
