Sudan protesters rally against economic hardship

Sudanese protesters rallied Wednesday against a deepening economic crisis but a large police and army presence prevented mass demonstrations that had been called for online.
The activists in the capital Khartoum and its twin city of Omdurman also demanded justice for those killed during the popular uprising that toppled president Omar al-Bashir last year.
