Sudanese PM survives assassination attempt

Khartoum, March 9 (IANS) Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok on Monday survived an assassination attempt in the capital Khartoum, state TV said in a report.

The report did not give any further details about the assassination attempt, reports Xinhua news agency.

However, witnesses have said that Hamdok’s motorcade came under a car bomb attack at the entry of the Sudanese army bridge.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Hamdok, who’s the 15th Prime Minister of Sudan, assumed office last August after pro-democracy protests forced the military to oust former leader Omar al-Bashir.
