KHARTOUM : Sudanese judicial authorities shut down a daily newspaper again Friday, pending further investigation, only two days after it reappeared following closure of more than a month, the Sudan Media Centre (SMC) said.

An SMC report published by local newspapers quoted the prosecutor of anti-state crimes, Mohamed Farid Hassan, who issued the suspension order, as saying the daily Alwan would stay closed until investigation into a lawsuit filed by the security authorities against it is completed. The newspaper reappeared on Wednesday after a judicial official cancelled an order by the prosecutor general closing the daily in mid-August for publishing reports regarded by the authorities as inciting hatred and discord. साभार : सूडान ट्रिब्यून
