Violent clashes erupted between residents and police in the Gamayer district in Sudan’s second city of Omdurman yesterday morning when police attempted to demolish El Rahma popular market in the district.

Four stalls were destroyed when traders protested. The clashes ended with the withdrawal of the police.

Traders complained to Radio Dabanga that though each of them paid SDG 1,300 ($200) to the locality, for the purpose of regulating and legalising the market, the market was removed, without warning or prior notice.
