Sudanese protesters Thursday stormed buildings of the powerful intelligence services in two eastern cities after officers refused to release political prisoners, witnesses said.

The official SUNA news agency had announced that the National Intelligence and Security Service was releasing all political detainees across the country.

But protesters in the eastern cities of Kasala and Port Sudan took matters into their own hands when the releases failed to materialise.

"Protesters stormed the building and looted all the equipment that was there," a witness from Kasala told AFP by telephone.
