Women’s day event denied permission in Sudan
It is unclear why permission was denied though March 8 event had been held without incident for the past eight years.

The women in the capital were told on Sunday that they needed additional authorisation from a government commission handling voluntary activities but that was just a delaying tactic, said Fahima Hashim, director of the Salam Centre for women’s rights.
“We didn’t get the permission” from state security agents for Saturday’s planned event, she said.
The March 8 event – marked around the world when women are recognised for their achievements – had been held without incident for the past eight years at Khartoum’s Nubian Club, Hashim told AFP.
Hashim said it was unclear why approval was denied, but it might be connected with the larger size of this year’s event.
“We had more than 30 groups joining us,” she said.
The day-long event typically features exhibitions, forums, films and concludes with a party.
Hashim said his renaissance was just “a lot of talk.”
