On Thursday, members of Resistance Committees in El Kalakla Sangaat closed the main roads in the neighbourhood, in protest against “the government’s silence” about the killing of a young activist earlier this week.

Unidentified armed men abducted Bahaeldin Nouri near his home in El Kalakla on Monday.

His relatives found his body, covered in blood and with visible signs of torture, in Omdurman Teaching Hospital in the early hours of the following day.

The family of Nouri said in a statement on Wednesday that a pick-up truck without number plates stopped at the El Kalakla Sangaat market. Two men got out of the car, seized Nouri, and took him to an unknown destination.

His sister, who reported her brother as missing at the El Kalakla police department, received a phone call on Monday evening, in which an unknown person told her they would find Nouri’s body in the morgue of the Omdurman Teaching Hospital.

The family called on the director general of the Sudanese police forces and the attorney general, to expedite the investigation into “this hideous crime”.
