Sudan: Growing protests against insecurity in central Darfur

Villagers in Darfur are demanding Sudan's government does more to protect them from militia attacks.

 

Thousands of protesters in Sudan have been staging a sit-in outside the administrative headquarters in the town of Nertiti, central Darfur, for more than a week.

 

They accuse the government of failing to protect them from militia attacks. Sudan's police chief and his deputy were sacked on the weekend.
