CAIRO — Three Sudanese ambassadors in Europe announce their defections today, condemning the military coup in their country and declaring their embassies as belonging to the “Sudanese people,” the information ministry says.

“We completely align ourselves with the heroic opposition (to the coup) followed by the entire world,” the envoys to France, Belgium and Switzerland say, declaring their missions as “embassies of the Sudanese people and their revolution.”
