Sudan jails journalist for reporting alleged rape

• Rawstory
A Sudanese journalist was jailed for a month on Tuesday, and her editor fined, for publishing reports on the alleged rape of a female opposition activist by security force personnel, their lawyer said.

Fatima Ghazali is the first of several journalists to be tried for articles they wrote about Safiya Ishaq, a youth activist who claimed in videos posted online that she was raped repeatedly by three security officers after her arrest in Khartoum in February.

Ishaq has since fled the country.
