Sudanese defence minister dies in Juba

Sudanese defence minister Jamal Al Din Omar died on Wednesday of a heart attack while on an official visit to neighbouring South Sudan.

Omar was in the country’s capital of Juba, taking part in peace talks between his country’s transitional government and rebel groups. He attended meetings that stretched into late on Tuesday and died early on Wednesday, Sudanese military and government officials said.

Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok mourned the general’s passing in a tweet, saying: “Today our country has lost one of its loyal and loyal sons.”
