Sudan revokes citizenship of Hamas leader — reports

Sudan has revoked the citizenship of Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal and some 3,000 other foreign nationals, according to Arabic media reports.

The move comes after the US earlier this week removed Sudan from its state sponsors of terrorism blacklist and declared a “fundamental change” in relations, less than two months after the Arab nation pledged to normalize ties with Israel.
