A Sudanese government delegation arrived Sunday in Central Darfur province for talks with hundreds of protesters camped outside a government building demanding better security conditions, state media said.


The delegation headed by Mohammed Hassan al-Taishi, a member of the Sovereign Council, was set to meet with the protesters at the sit-in in the town of Nitrite, according to Sudan’s state-run SUNA news agency.


Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has tweeted that the protesters’ demands were “fair and worthy,” vowing to work to carry them out for “the security and stability” in the region.


Two protesters were killed in Tuesday's demonstrations, according to protest organizers.
