Default Turnbull: 'There is real concern about Sudanese gangs'

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has declared there is a "real concern about Sudanese gangs" in Melbourne, as he described how colleagues have backed claims that residents are scared to go out to dinner due to street crime.

Responding to research by Victoria’s Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission - which linked a spike in racist incidents to the federal government's language around race and crime - the Prime Minister said the connection was "nonsense".
It comes months after Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton's controversial comments that Melbourne residents were scared to go out to restaurants because African gangs were roaming the streets.
