Rioting in Sudan

Rioting broke out in the Sudanese capital Khartoum over high food prices and bread shortages, and state-run newspapers said 35 students and workers accused of inciting weekend disturbances were to be flogged. Egypt's Middle East News Agency reported that despite heavy security, students poured out of university campuses and shouted anti-government slogans. Gunshots could be heard and police forces were moving to surround the protesters, MENA said. - AP
