Sudanese authorities have arrested a dozen pro-Saddam Hussein supporters who demonstrated against the ousted Iraqi leader's execution, a member of the Baath Party in this capital said Thursday. Seventeen others were injured, including the party's Secretary-General Osman Abu Rass who was "severely beaten up by police using batons and sticks," said Mohamed Dhyaa said. Those arrested are scheduled to stand trial later Thursday, he said.
