RIYADH: The Saudi Cultural Attaché office in Sudan was ransacked on Tuesday morning by an armed group that vandalized equipment and cameras, seized some of the attaché’s property, and disabled its systems and servers.

In a foreign ministry statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency, the Kingdom strongly condemned the ransacking, calling for respect for diplomatic missions and for punishing the perpetrators.

Saudi Arabia renewed the call to halt military escalation, end the violence, and to provide the necessary protection for diplomats, residents, and Sudanese civilians.
