Sudan commander says security force at a bank killed protesting children

A top Sudanese army commander said a security force assigned to guard a bank in El-Obeid was responsible for killing protesting children in the city on Monday, the official SUNA news agency quoted him as saying on Thursday.
At least six people were killed at a rally in El-Obeid, 400 km (250 miles) southwest of Khartoum, at least four of whom were children.
They were killed when security forces broke up a student protest in the city, opposition-linked doctors said. The teenagers were rallying against fuel and bread shortages, residents said.
