Sudan Army Chief General Abdel Fattah al Burhan has relieved six Sudanese ambassadors of their duties.

According to an announcement made by Sudanese State Television on Wednesday, the decision suspends Sudan's ambassadors to the United States, the European Union, China, Qatar, France, and the head of Sudan's mission to Geneva.


According to a diplomatic source, Sudanese ambassadors in 12 countries, including the United States, the United Arab Emirates, China, and France, have rejected Monday's military takeover. Foreign Minister Mariam al Mahdi also pledged to peacefully oppose the Khartoum coup.

Sudanese continue to demonstrate in Khartoum's streets in opposition to the dissolution of the transitional government and the reinstatement of the Transitional Military Council.


The Rapid Support Forces (RSF) opened fire on protesters to disperse them, killing seven and injuring hundreds, eerily similar to the bloody crackdowns in Khartoum in June 2019.
