` Student dies after police fired ` Tear Gas ‘ at a Demonstration taking place at ` Khartoum University ‘

#AceWorldNews A student in Sudan died on Tuesday after police fired tear gas at a demonstration taking place at Khartoum University, in the country’s centre, according to a statement emailed to Reuters by police.

The protesters reportedly had ties with the Darfur region, where dozens have been killed in recent weeks during clashes with the forces of Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir.

The police deployed tear gas and used batons on the 200 students who had comprised the march against violence in Darfur, for which they hold the government responsible.

Bashir has remained in power, despite an indictment from the International Criminal Court accusing him of instigating war crimes in Darfur.
