The Arab League is set to hold an emergency meeting to discuss the recent violence in Sudan. The meeting, which was called for by the Sudanese government, will be held in Cairo, Egypt.
The violence in Sudan began earlier this month when security forces opened fire on peaceful protesters calling for a return to civilian rule. At least 30 people have been killed and hundreds injured in the crackdown, according to human rights groups.
The Arab League meeting is expected to focus on ways to end the violence and support a peaceful transition to civilian rule in Sudan. The Sudanese government has been under pressure from the international community to hand over power to a civilian-led government since the ousting of former president Omar al-Bashir in 2019.
The Arab League is a regional organization made up of 22 member states, and its mission is to promote economic, cultural, and political cooperation among its members. The league has previously intervened in regional crises, including the conflicts in Yemen and Syria.
The meeting comes as the United States and other Western countries have expressed concern over the situation in Sudan. The US has called for an immediate end to the violence and the formation of a civilian-led government.
The violence in Sudan has been met with condemnation from the international community, with many calling for an end to the crackdown and a return to democracy. The Arab League meeting is an important opportunity for the region to come together and find a solution to the crisis, and to support the people of Sudan in their quest for peace and stability.
