Sudan Arrests Darfur Activists, Rights Groups Say

Sudanese authorities arrested nine peace activists from the western region of Darfur and are holding them without charge, said AlBaqir Alafif Mukhtar, head of a human rights group.

Eight activists were arrested on Oct. 30 after a meeting of youth organizations at the Al-Khatim Adlan Center for Enlightenment and Human Development in Khartoum, the capital, to discuss Southern Sudan’s independence referendum in January, Mukhtar, the center’s director, said today.
