Sudan police, students clash in Khartoum protests

Youths protest against government policies

Students clashed with police in Khartoum on Sunday, as Sudanese youths heeded calls to take to the streets for a day of nationwide, anti-government protests.

At the Islamic University of Omdurman, Khartoum's twin city, around 1,000 demonstrators were confronted by riot police as they marched along the street shouting slogans criticizing the president, an AFP reporter saw.

"Ocampo, what you have said is right!" they chanted, in reference to the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, who has accused President Omar al-Bashir of genocide and war crimes in Darfur.
