A US embassy official was wounded in a gun attack which killed an embassy driver in the Sudanese capital, the embassy said yesterday.

"An American was wounded and a Sudanese driver killed from gunshots," on Monday, an employee with the US embassy said without specifying whether the American citizen is a diplomat.

"Unidentified gunmen opened fire on a US embassy vehicle shortly after midnight as it was driving down Road 60, in the central district of Al-Amrat," the employee said.

"We do not know who opened fire nor the motivation behind the attack," he added. - Sapa-AFP
