Blinken says any violence against peaceful Sudan demonstrators 'unacceptable'

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Saturday that Sudan’s security forces must respect human rights and that any violence against peaceful demonstrators is "unacceptable."

He said in a Twitter post that the United States continues to stand with "Sudan’s people in their nonviolent struggle for democracy."

Opponents of a military coup in Sudan have called for nationwide protests on Saturday to demand the restoration of a civilian-led government to put the country back on a path to democracy after decades of authoritarian rule.
