Sudanese Student Protester Dies

A second Sudanese protester has died from injuries incurred during a protest last Thursday in Khartoum:

A Sudanese student has died of the injuries he sustained during clashes with riot police in the capital last week, an official said on Monday.

Khaled Mohammed Nour, 22, a student of commerce at Nilein University in Khartoum, died in hospital on Sunday night, the Interior Ministry official said. Police beat him on the head during the protests last Thursday, a student source said.

He was the second Sudanese student to die in the protests against the conduct of student elections at the University of Ed Delenj in central Sudan. The protesters say the elections were rigged in favour of pro-government candidates.
