Sudan's army suspends crucial talks with protesters
Date created :
Sudan's military rulers suspend crucial talks with protesters on installing civilian rule, demanding that roadblocks in Khartoum first be taken down. The move came after at least nine people were reportedly wounded by security forces near a sit-in in the capital. Also, in Niger, at least 17 soldiers are killed in a devastating ambush near the Malian border. And Zimbabwe's president sacks his energy minister as public frustration grows over power cuts.
