African Union suspends Sudan after violent crackdown

International Editor

The foreign office has summoned Sudan’s ambassador and the African Union has suspended the country’s membership after a violent crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators.

Opposition activists say at least 100 people have been killed this week, blaming the paramilitary group formerly known as the Janjaweed. The military says the death toll is lower and has refused to hand power to civilians.
