NEW YORK – Western Union Co said on Thursday it suspended its services in Sudan as of Oct. 26 “due to the military coup.”

At least 11 people have died in confrontations between soldiers and anti-coup protesters after the Sudanese army took over control earlier this week.

Western Union said it is monitoring the Sudanese situation and “will resume operations when it is once again safe to do so.”
