(Jun 02, 2008) On May 12, 2008, Sudanese security forces arrested the leader of the People's Congress opposition party, Hassan al-Turabi, along with ten of his senior assistants. Mahjoub Fadl, media consultant for the Sudanese President, declared that the detention of al-Turabi, senior officials of the People's Congress Party, and others, whom he did not name, was in connection with the attack on Um Darman, one of the districts of the capital Khourtom, carried out by the militants of the Justice and Equality Movement. The spokesman for the Justice and Equality Movement, Ahmed Hussein Adam, denied any relation between his movement and the People's Congress Party and told ALJAZEERA that his movement is independent and carried out the attack on its own.
