TWO Brit diplomats were robbed at knife point in a terrifying ordeal.
The officials – a man and a woman – were confronted in Khartoum, Sudan’s capital, and had a knife pointed in their faces.
Local media reports initially said the pair had been held at gunpoint by a gang and an embassy car stolen in the incident.
According to reports the male and female diplomat were made to kneel on the ground while a knife was held to their face.
They had bags containing mobile phones and cameras stolen, it was reported.
But the Foreign Office said it was a just one attacker who carried out the robbery and no guns were used.
An FCDO spokesman said: “We are aware of an incident in Khartoum. No one was hurt and those involved are safe.
“We are working with the Sudanese authorities in their investigation.”
