Sudan police crack down on student protest

12.26.11 11:11 AM

KHARTOUM, Sudan, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Sudanese police used violence to break up a student protest at the University of Khartoum, arresting more than 70 students, the students say.

The Sunday crackdown came after thousands of students refused to sit for exams and held a protest against the university administration's resolution authorizing police forces to enter the campus, The Sudan Tribune reported.

Students planned the protest after a similar police crackdown against students Thursday who were demonstrating in solidarity with al-Manasir, a group of people displaced by a government dam project on the Nile River.

A witness of the Sunday crackdown told The Sudan Tribune police used tear gas and batons to disperse the students.

Khartoum state police chief Lt. Gen. Mohamed Ahmad said only 32 protesters were taken into custody and charged with staging riots.

However, anti-government youth group Girifna reported on its Facebook page that more than 90 students were arrested.
