United Nations human rights chief Michelle Bachelet called on Monday for Sudanese security forces to halt attacks on Khartoum protest camps and to allow medical workers access to the wounded after at least 13 people were reported killed.

 

I utterly deplore the apparent use of excessive force in the protest camps. Reports that live ammunition was used by security forces next to, and even inside, medical facilities are extremely alarming," Bachelet said in a statement. "I urge the security forces to immediately halt such attacks, and to ensure safe, unimpeded access to medical care for all.
