Darfuri university students who arrived in El Fasher over the past days after their mass resignation from the University of Bakht El Rida in White Nile were stopped at the entrance to the North Darfur capital, for their “intentions to destabilise the city”.

They have left the university in El Duweim and a village south of Khartoum after mediation failed to solve the problems concerning more than 1,000 students who resigned in protest against the expulsion of fellow students.
