Call for civil disobedience after arrests

The umbrella group leading Sudan’s pro-democracy movement has called for a nationwide campaign of civil disobedience, days after a bloody military crackdown left dozens dead. It called for the campaign to start and continue until a civilian government was installed. The announcement followed the arrest of three opposition figures who had been involved in mediation efforts. They had met Ethiopia’s prime minister to try to restart peace talks. However, opposition politician Mohamed Esmat was arrested on Friday soon after his meeting with Ethiopia’s Abiy Ahmed, aides said, while Ismail Jalab, a leader of the rebel SPLM-N group and his spokesman Mubarak Ardol were detained.
