KHARTOUM - North Sudan has suspended six newspapers because southerners are among their publishers or owners, a state-linked news agency said on Friday, a day before the south becomes an independent state.

The National Newspaper Council suspended five English-language papers and an Arabic one, among them Ajras al-Huriya, linked to the southern ruling party, the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM), the Sudanese Media Center (SMC) said.
