SUDAN PROTESTS OVER FUEL TURN DEADLY, 7 KILLED

Seven protesters have been killed in clashes with security forces during demonstrations in Sudan against a cut in fuel subsidies, medics and relatives say. 
Wednesday's protests in and around the capital Khartoum, which started three days ago, were continuing as night fell. 
Demonstrators set a university building and several petrol stations on fire and blocked the main road to the airport near the Rotana luxury hotel, witnesses said. 
A Reuters news agency reporter saw police fire tear-gas volleys into the crowd, while hundreds of officers and plainclothes security agents armed with guns or batons deployed to the city centre.  Others were seen sitting on the roof of government buildings. 
  • Police detained about 20 protesters who were driven away in pickup vehicles, a witness said. "Most areas in Khartoum saw unrest and unauthorised gatherings aimed at damaging property and allowing looting, necessitating police intervention," a police statement said.
