KHARTOUM (Reuters) - The head of Sudan's ruling military council on Wednesday pardoned 235 detained members of the Sudan Liberation Movement, a rebel group that is active in the country's western Darfur region, according to a statement read out on Sudanese state TV.
The statement, which was attributed to military council head Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, said the prisoners should be released immediately unless they are wanted in connection with other legal proceedings.
