'Media abuses' cloud Sudan's poll

Journalists say the government manipulates media in the run-up to Sunday's vote.

    As Sudan prepares for its first multiparty elections in 24 years, campaigning has been overshadowed by widespread allegations of irregularities.

    Some opposition parties have cited lack of access to balanced media coverage among reasons for boycotting the poll.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Khartoum on how some Sudanese journalists say the government is manipulating media outlets to shape public opinion in the run-up to the vote.
