A United Nations human rights expert on Sudan has called for investigations into the killings of protesters and other atrocities occurring in the country.

On Saturday, Adama Dieng said, quoting a toll provided by pro-democracy medics; “It is simply unacceptable that 99 people have been killed and more than 5,000 injured as a result of excessive use of force by the joint security forces.

The UN expert called on authorities to expedite investigations into the killings of protesters.

He raised concerns during talks with senior officials over arbitrary and mass arrests of activists, sexual and gender-based violence, and acts of torture and ill-treatment during detentions.

He added that an inquiry set up by Sudanese authorities has confirmed four cases of sexual violence during the protests.

Sudan has been rocked by unrest and violent crackdowns against mass protests since army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan grabbed power on October 25 of last year.
