Sudanese court orders company to end internet blackout
Lawyer says Zain instructed to immediately restore internet services to the country
Khartoum — A Sudanese court ordered telecoms operator Zain Sudan on Sunday to restore internet services, a lawyer said, after they were severed nearly three weeks ago when security forces dispersed protesters camping in central Khartoum.
Sudan’s military rulers ordered the internet blackout as a security measure but it is harming the economy and humanitarian operations in the African nation of 40-million. The protesters are demanding the military hand power to a civilian authority.
