A grenade exploded during a wedding party in Sudan’s capital Monday, killing at least seven people, including three children, security and medical officials said. A fight between two people at the weddin party escalated into one of them throwing the grenade and causing the explosion, the health ministry said in a statement.
The officials said the explosion also injured at least two dozen adults and children, who were taken to nearby hospitals from the party in the Shegla neighbourhood in Khartoum’s al-Haj Youssef district.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
Images shared online showed injured people with bandages and blood on their bodies being treated at a hospital.
