Lessons in all Sudanese schools have been suspended indefinitely amid mass demonstrations over the shooting dead of schoolchildren at a rally. The ruling military authorities ordered schools nationwide to close their doors from Wednesday, the state news agency said. Protesting students gathered in cities including the capital Khartoum following the killings on Monday. Dozens more were injured after snipers and other gunmen opened fire on a protest in El-Obeid over fuel and bread shortages. Hundreds of children, many dressed in their school uniforms and waving Sudanese flags, took to the streets of Khartoum on Tuesday to protest about the killings in El-Obeid.
