Sudan politicians on coup charges
Some 25 Sudanese opposition politicians arrested in July for allegedly planning a coup against President Omar al-Bashir have been formally charged.
The Justice Ministry in Khartoum is reported as saying that charges range from the unlawful possession of arms to organising a terrorist group.
Among the 25 are the head of the Umma Party for Reform and Renewal and Democratic Unionist Party leaders.
The detained politicians began a hunger strike last week.
They were protesting at what they said were their unlawful detention without charge.
A demonstration on Sunday by students affiliated to the DUP was broken up by police, firing tear gas.
The students were prevented them from handing a letter to the Justice Minister demanding the politicans' release.
No trial date has yet been announced.
