Hundreds March in Sudan Against Mursi Death Sentence

Around 800 protesters marched through Sudan's capital on Friday. The march was organized to protest against a court's decision this week to seek the death penalty for Egypt's ousted Islamist president Mohamed Mursi. Sudan's government has, up to now, declined to comment on the sentence in neighboring Egypt, describing it as an internal matter. However, the march was organized by the Islamic Movement, a faction of Sudan's ruling National Congress Party. The march suggests some in the ruling elite want to send a stronger signal against Egypt's crackdown on Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood.
