TERRORISM:US to remove Sudan from list of state sponsors

by Kunle Awosiyan

US President Donald Trump has said Sudan will come off a list of state sponsors of terror if it pays compensation of $335m.

Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok responded by saying the funds had been transferred but there was no immediate US confirmation.

The compensation relates to al-Qaeda’s 1998 bombing of US embassies in Africa.

Sudan has been listed since 1993 when al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden lived there as a guest of the government.
