Russian consul general, wife stabbed in Sudan

A Russian diplomat and his wife were stabbed in Sudan's capital on Tuesday by a man from Central African Republic, Khartoum police said.


The attacker had just heard his brother had been killed by European troops in his home country and wanted to take revenge by attacking a Westerner, the force added in a statement. Both Russia's consul general and his wife were in a stable condition, the statement added. (Reuters)
