Sudan security forces disperse protesters near Khartoum

KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Sudanese security forces fired tear gas and stun grenades on Friday at 300-400 protesters leaving a mosque in Omdurman, near the capital, a Reuters witness said.

Opposition groups and activists had called for large anti-government protests to take place following weekly Muslim prayers on Friday.
