Opposition parties mounted a rally of thousands of Sudanese in the wake of four days of anti-government unrest, and they demanded that the government seek peace with rebels in the south. Chants of “There is no northern Sudan without southern Sudan; there is no south without north,” spurred the crowd in Omduran, just north of Khartoum, the capital.

The strikes ended after the financially strapped government agreed to roll back huge price increases that went into effect early in the week.
