President Bashir declares state of emergency along border

On Sunday president Bashir declared a state of emergency in a number of localities along the border areas.

The state of emergency will be applied across South Kordofan and White Nile states to respond to the ‘circumstances of war.’

Special courts will be set up to try anyone accused or suspected of acting against the Anti-Terrorism Act 2001.

Prosecutors will also be assigned to investigate and carry out proceedings established under this decree.
