Sudan government releases three detained rebels


The Sudanese authorities on Monday released three prominent rebels who were detained after a brutal crackdown on protesters last week that left dozens dead in Khartoum.

According to the deputy chief of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N), Yasir Arman was released along with two other leading rebels from the group, Ismail Jalab and Mubarak Ardol, it said, but did not specify when.

Arman arrived in Khartoum on May 26 to take part in talks with Sudan’s ruling generals who took power after the ouster of President Omar al-Bashir in April following months of mass protests against his authoritarian rule.
