Sudan: Former Prime Minster Arrested


Governing forces in Sudan arrested former Prime Ministr and opposition member Sadiq al-Mahdi.

Al-Mahdi was investigated last week following statements made by the former PM, accusing the current government of murder, rape and of looting the western region of Darfur. In light of the statements, the country’s intelligence bureau has accused al-Mahdi of spreading false information, disturbing the peace and slander.
