Sudan protest group says two leaders arrested amid tensions with army
The Sudanese Professionals' Association, which has spearheaded the protests demanding civilian rule, said on Tuesday the arrests took place in the capital, Khartoum, and the northern city of Atbara, the birthplace of the uprising that led the military to overthrow and jail Omar al-Bashir in April.
The SPA says security forces also searched houses of three other leaders.
A spokesman for police did not immediately respond to calls seeking comment.
The arrests come two days after protesters flooded the streets of Sudan's main cities on Sunday in the biggest show of numbers since security forces cleared a sit-in last month.
