Relations between Sudan and Lebanon turn sour.
As a reaction to what happened, Sudanese discussion boards organized campaigns calling for boycotting Lebanese businesses in Sudan and a petition is being generated demanding an investigation and an apology.
Head of the Lebanese general security, Wafiq Jazini, dismissed claims that the GS used force against the Sudanese refugees in Ouzai. He was quoted by Sudanese media as saying that the Sudanese refugees attempted to escape and described accounts saying otherwise as "lies". Jazini said that only those who were in Lebanon illegally have been detained. The Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs is still waiting for a complete investigations regarding what happened in Ouzai before apologizing to Sudanese authorities, ASHARQ AL AWSAT reported.
