The US embassy in Khartoum on Tuesday May 14th blamed Sudan's ruling military council for the deaths of six people in violence that rocked a sit-in protest in the capital, AFP has reported.

"The tragic attacks on protesters yesterday that led to the deaths of at least six Sudanese and potentially one hundred or more injured were clearly the result of the Transitional Military Council trying to impose its will on the protesters by attempting to remove roadblocks," the US embassy said in a statement posted on its Facebook page.
