Sudanese police clash with students in Khartoum

KHARTOUM, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Sudanese police beat and arrested students in downtown Khartoum witnesses said on Sunday as protests broke out throughout the city demanding the government resign.

“Dozens of police have begun to beat the students with batons in Jackson Square,” one protester called Mohamed Salah told Reuters. “Some have been arrested.”

A Reuters witness also said armed riot police fired teargas and surrounded students in at least two universities in the capital. (Writing by Opheera McDoom)
