Khartoum... Radio Dabanga broadcasters detained
In our November 11/14 program we reported that we'd been trying to reach Radio Dabanga, an independent radio station in Sudan's capital city of Khartoum. Police raided its studios and offices of local human rights organizations on October 30.
We managed to make contact with Radio Dabanga, and discovered police are still holding 13 journalists and human rights workers incommunicado at an unknown location, with no access to legal or medical assistance.
