GENEVA (Reuters) – Sudanese authorities must grant human rights monitors access to the country and end “repression” against protesters and the shutdown of the Internet, U.N. human rights boss Michelle Bachelet said on Monday.

Bachelet, in a speech opening a three-week session of the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva, said that her office had reports that more than 100 protesters were killed and many more injured during an assault by security forces on a peaceful sit-in on June 3. “Hundreds of protesters may be missing,” she said.
