New York, July 3, 2012–Sudanese authorities should allow
journalists to cover anti-government demonstrations in Khartoum, the Committee
to Protect Journalists said today. Over the past week, authorities have raided
a media office and a journalist’s home, arrested one journalist and
interrogated another, deported a third journalist, and blocked at least three
critical websites.
