Opposition leaders arrested in Khartoum

The Sudanese government arrested 14 members of the Islamist opposition Popular Congress Party of former prime minister Hassan El Turabi on Wednesday as security was tightened around the capital, Khartoum. The Interior Ministry, in a statement broadcast on Radio Omdurman, accused those arrested of attempting to sabotage the peace. There was extra police, military and security personnel on Khartoum streets, where they set up roadblocks. The government last year accused Turabi of sedition and claimed that his party was supporting the rebel Justice and Equality Movement in the western region of Darfur.
