KHARTOUM, SUDAN

Hundreds of Sudanese journalists on Tuesday criticized violations against freedom of expression and press freedoms since a military coup late last month.

Journalists gathered in for a rally in Khartoum and handed a complaint letter to UN Special Envoy to Sudan to demand granting freedoms and a halt to violations against protests.

An organizer, Majid Mohamed Ali, said journalists have witnessed mounting violations that he said prove the mentality of coup leaders.

“There are amounting violations since the coup. Two journalists have been injured during coverage -- one of them with rubber bullets. More than five have been arrested and others summoned by security “ or have been denied access to some areas or flashpoints, Ali said at the rally.

Wide human rights violations have been reported since military took control of country on Oct. 25 with more than 20 protesters killed and over 100 injured.
