Following almost two weeks of student-led protests over spending cuts, opposition parties condemn government crackdown and demand release of jailed protesters


Sudanese opposition leaders have condemned Tuesday's crackdown by security forces on country-wide anti-austerity protests, which have entered their eleventh day.

Hatem El-Ser, former presidential candidate and a leader of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), stated that the ruling National Congress Party was carrying out unjust policies and attempting to ignite conflict by pursuing its economic policies.

He called on the authorities to release all prisoners detained since the start of the protests.

"If the government continues to follow through with the budget cuts and other measures it will result in a further crisis," El-Ser said.
