EU Ambassador In Sudan Attacked At Home

The EU’s ambassador in Sudan has been assaulted in his home in Khartoum, top EU diplomat Josep Borrell has said.

Mr Borrell did not reveal any details of the attack, but an EU spokeswoman said the ambassador was “OK”.

“Security of diplomatic premises and staff is a primary responsibility of Sudanese authorities”, Mr Borrell wrote on Twitter.

Although Mr Borrell didn’t name him, the EU’s ambassador to Sudan is Aidan O’Hara, an Irish diplomat.

Monday was Sudan’s third day of fighting between the army and a paramilitary group called the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

Both sides claimed to control key sites in Khartoum, where residents sheltered from explosions.
