Students sustained injuries in an attack by members of the ruling party’s student wing, in the University of Bahri on Monday. Other students are missing in Northern state.

A student told Radio Dabanga that the attack by National Congress Party students took place when students were addressing a discussion corner in the university.

“Numbers of the NCP students were armed with machetes and metal bars when they attacked the corner. They wounded at least three students.”

Meanwhile, the Darfuri students association has announced the disappearance of eight students from its University of Dongola, Sudan’s Northern state. They disappeared after NCP students stormed their residences, torched them, and took a number of Darfuri students with them.

The association holds the security service responsible for the safety of the students.
