Six dead in Sudan's West Darfur after protest crackdown

At least six people have been killed in unrest in Sudan’s West Darfur, sources said Monday, the day after security forces dispersed protesters outside government buildings in the state capital Geneina. The violence began Sunday when security forces broke up a rally outside government buildings by villagers from Mulli, near Geneina, who reportedly fled their homes after being surrounded by the tribe of a herder found dead nearby. “The victims were from all sides, and there are no more than six,” governor Khalil al-Sharif told the private Blue Nile television station by telephone.
