Rihanna Expresses Support for Sudanese Protesters

The American singer Rihanna tweeted her support for protesters in Sudan. “I send my love, and I pray for the safety of the Sudanese people. They have a right to speak out and demand peace, justice and a transition to civilian rule. Over 100 were killed & hundreds more were wounded during the June 3rd protests. Military rulers need to be held accountable. Praying for no more killings or abuse today. Fight for human rights in #Africa and stand with protesters in #Sudan,” she tweeted.
