US envoy to Sudan discharged after Khartoum crash

US ambassador to Sudan, John Godfrey, has been discharged from hospital after sustaining minor injuries in a car crash in the capital, Khartoum.

The embassy said two other employees were also involved in the Wednesday accident.

It did not state the cause of the accident but said the trio was taken to a local hospital for evaluation after experiencing minor injuries.

Ambassador Godfrey is now resting at home, the embassy tweeted.

Mr Godfrey is the first US ambassador to Sudan in nearly a quarter a century and arrived in the country in August 2022.

The two countries opened a “new chapter” in 2021 after Sudan completed paying compensation to American victims of terror attacks in Kenya, Tanzania and Yemen.
