The authorities in protest-hit Sudan have removed accreditation from two foreign reporters meaning they will not be allowed to report on events in the country where anti-government demonstrations have entered their sixth week.

The two journalists work for Saudi-based Al Arabiya and Turkey’s Anadolu news agency respectively.

The authorities said they wanted to review the journalists’ status, but gave no further explanation.

Protests began in Sudan last month over the economic situation in the country but are now focused on removing long-time President Omar al-Bashir from office.

Officials say 26 people have died in the protests, but rights groups say more than 40 have been killed.
