U.S. halts $700 million in economic support funds for Sudan after military takeover

U.S. State Department Spokesperson Ned Price said on Tuesday that Washington was pausing $700 million in economic support for Sudan, after its military seized power from a transitional government on Monday and soldiers killed at least three people and wounded 80 amid protests. “The United States will not hesitate to hold accountable those who are engaged in violence, those who are responsible,” Price told reporters.
