Blinken Says U.S. Convoy Fired Upon in Sudan

Blinken called the attack 'totally unacceptable'

None of the Americans were injured, he told reporters while speaking in Japan, emphasizing that the convoy was fired upon despite bearing diplomatic plates and a U.S. flag.

"We have deep concerns, of course, about the overall security environment as it affects civilians, as it affects diplomats, as it affects aid workers," he said.
