Sudan's powerful presidential adviser Dr. Majzoub al-Khalifa died in a car accident in northern Sudan, a presidential source said on Wednesday. "He died in a car accident on his way to Shendi," the source said, according to Reuters. "He and his brother were killed and other members of his family were wounded in the accident."
It appeared Khalifa's car tire blew which made the car flip. The accident happened at around 4.30 a.m. (0130 GMT) on Wednesday.
Khalifa was the head of the government negotiating team in talks which led to the signing of a peace deal last year in Sudan's Darfur region.
