Sudan activists say bodies pulled from Nile after over 100 killed in military crackdown

Activists in Sudan say at least 100 people have died after a violent military crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators. A protest camp in Khartoum was attacked on Monday, and there are reports of dozens of bodies being pulled out of the River Nile.

Most of the violence is being blamed on the paramilitary group formerly known as the Janjaweed militia, notorious for its role in the Darfur conflict. There are fears that the group’s leader is making a grab for power.
