Sudan is submitting a formal complaint to the UN Security Council against Ethiopia for allegedly kidnapping and killing seven Sudanese soldiers and a civilian last week, according to SUNA. Sudan has also summoned Ethiopia’s ambassador in Khartoum over the incident, for which President Abdel Fattah El Sisi extended his condolences to Sudan’s military leader General Abdel Fattah Al Burhan over the incident, according to an Ittihadiya statement, while Ethiopia’s foreign ministry denied the accusation, Reuters reports.
