The Sudanese Communist Party-owned daily Almidan said on its website and the local press freedom group Sudanese Journalists Network said in a statement published on its Facebook page that Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) has arrested four Almidan journalists and editors since January 25, and stopped the outlet from distributing the print version of the paper seven times since the protests started in December. The moves came as Bashir, speaking at a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in Cairo, blamed the media for exaggerating the size of the protests.
