Sudanese President Jaafar Numeiri, who has survived more than 20 coup plots, accused an Islamic fundamentalist group of plotting to topple his government. Diplomats said more than 20 members of the organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, were arrested. Among those held was Hassan Tourabe, Numeiri's political adviser and a chief architect of the controversial Islamic law system introduced into Sudan by Numeiri in 1983.
