SUDANESE OPPOSITON LEADER FREED


Sudanese Islamist leader Hassan al- Turabi has been released from prison, his family says.

Mr. Turabi’s  son ,Siddig said his father had been freed and returned to his home in Khartoum without explanation. Mr. Turabi was imprisoned two months ago after calling on Sudanese President Omar al- Bashir to surrender to the International Criminal Court.

The ICC issued an arrest warrant for Mr.Bashir on charges of war and crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur.

“We don’t know what is going to happen in the morning but there is no guard outside the house in Khartoum,” said Siddig al- Turabi, Reuters news agency reported.
