Sudan Reporters Go Online to Challenge Crackdown on Press

When Abbaker Musa died at a University of Khartoum protest, Sudan’s newspapers carried a statement saying authorities had used tear gas.

Upstart news website al-Tareeq, which means ‘the Way’ in Arabic, reported that he was gunned down, citing eye-witness accounts that the police fired live ammunition at peaceful demonstrators on March 11. After London-based Amnesty International condemned the crackdown in the capital, Khartoum, the website reported that too.
