Reuters on the ground in Khartoum:

• about 150 protesters, mostly women and some in trousers gathered in a traffic island to wave banners outside the Khartoum court.

• the women were later joined by dozens of men in traditional Islamic dress who shouted religious slogans and denounced Hussein and her supporters, DESCRIBING THEM AS PROSTITUTES AND DEMANDING A HARSH PUNISHMENT FOR HUSSEIN. (caps mine. A)

“dozens of women loaded in vans” — as we reported.

“They are beating us. They are trying to provoke us into violent action so they can react and clear us off the streets … I never thought this would happen,” Nahed Goubia, a surgeon in a white trouser suit, said before riot police cleared the area.
