Sudan's press claims crackdown

After summer of protests, government has cracked down on independent media, forcing some journalists out of work.

    At one newspaper in Khartoum, journalists said they lost their jobs when their boss got a sudden call from Sudanese intelligence telling him to close down the newspaper.

    Two papers have been closed in as many months, and others - even those not aligned with the opposition - are claiming harassment.

    Others who have been shut down in the past are comfortably sure it will happen again.
