Darfuri students of the United People’s Front took to the streets in the Sudanese capital this morning in protest against the current attacks on Jebel Marra.

The demonstration started at the campus of the El Nilein University in downtown Khartoum. The students managed to reach Jakson Square near the bus station.

They chanted slogans denouncing the government attacks on villages in Jebel Marra.
