Sudan protests handled 'without repression or opposition': government spokesman

CAIRO (Reuters) - A spokesman for the Sudanese government said on Friday that protests over prices in several cities on Wednesday and Thursday were “dealt with in a civilized way without repression or opposition”, the official Sudan News Agency reported.

“Peaceful demonstrations were derailed and transformed by infiltrators into subversive activity targeting public institutions and property, burning, destroying and burning some police headquarters,” he was quoted as saying. He added, “The crisis is known to the government and is being dealt with.”
