US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has condemned an attack on a US convoy.

Report says the attack occurred in Sudan amid fighting between the army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, RSF.

Mr. Blinken said “This action was reckless, it was irresponsible and of course unsafe,”

“We have deep concerns about the overall security environment,” he said.

It came as Mr. Blinken spoke to the head of the army Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and RSF head Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo and stressed the importance of ensuring the safety of diplomatic personnel and aid workers.

The EU’s ambassador in Sudan, Aidan O’Hara, was earlier reported to have been assaulted at his home in the capital Khartoum amid the fighting between the army and RSF forces.

Around 185 people have been killed and more than 1,800 injured in three days of fighting in Sudan, according to the UN.
