Sudan denied claims by Western diplomats that the Russian private-mercenary company Wagner Group is operating in the country.

The U.S. charge d’affaires, along with the British and Norwegian ambassadors to the North African nation, said in an article published in al-Sudani newspaper on Sunday that the Wagner Group is involved in “illicit activities” connected to gold mining and spreading disinformation online in Sudan.
