UN urges Sudan’s people to support reinstated prime minister

Sudan could face even darker days ahead if protesters don't accept the junta's concession, the UN chief said.
Sudan's Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok looks on during a deal-signing ceremony with top general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan (unseen) to restore the transition to civilian rule in the country in the capital Khartoum, on Nov. 21, 2021.

The head of the United Nations called on Sudan’s people to support the country’s recently reinstated prime minister after a military coup ousted the government in October.

Secretary General Antonio Guterres said he sympathizes with Sudanese protesters’ “indignation” at the coup leaders' continued role in government after Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok returned to office last month.
