KHARTOUM (Reuters) – A university student was killed in protests in the Sudanese city of al-Qadarif on Thursday, a member of parliament said.

“The situation in al-Qadarif has become dangerous and the protests have developed to include fires and theft and it’s now out of control,” said lawmaker Mubarak al-Nur.

Protests that started in the city of Atbara in northeastern Sudan on Wednesday spread to al-Qadarif as well as the capital Khartoum and other cities on Thursday.
