Boycott clouds Sudan poll prospects

Main opposition candidate drops out of presidential race, citing "irregularities".

    With less than two weeks to go before Sudan's presidential election, Yasir Arman of the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM), the main opposition challenger to President Omar al-Bashir, has removed himself from the race.

    SPLM says it is boycotting the planned vote on April 11 because of what it calls "electoral irregularities" and the continuing conflict in Darfur.
