IN LONDON, Amnesty Inter-
national expressed "profound
disqiet" over the executions in
a cable sent to Numairi and
urged clemency for any others
convicted by the tribunal.
Amnesty International cam-
paigns for the release of political
prisoners around the world and
is opposed to capital punish-
ment.
The executions were ratified
by Numairi, who has referred to
the convicted plotters of "a
handful of Satan's disciples, who
were all full of hate and of
dubiis character."
THE OFFICIAL Omdurman
radio said one of those put to

Mohammed Nur Saad, the mili-

years to life.
ALL THE trial defendants
were charged with waging war
on the government and attempt-
ing to overthrow the regime.
Even before the trials were
over Numairi told the Sudanese
People's Assembly last Saturday
that "Sudan will not be tolerant
with the criminals."
The radio broadcast did not of-
ficially say how the executions
were carried out, but authorita-
tive sources said the men were
shot by firing squads.
Sudanese newspapers reported
Wednesday's executions in a
corner of their front pages, but
otherwise gave no prominence
to the news and provided no
details.

Sudan, an Arab country with
strong African overtones, is re-
nowned for blood feuds and tri-
bal differences which Numairi
has tried to smooth over in his
seven years in power.
MANY of the rebels are be-
lieved to have belonged to the
Ansar sect, headed by former
Premier Sadek El Mahdi. Nu-
mairi has accused Libya of fi-
nancing and arming the rebels
with the aim of restoring Mahdi
to power.
Libya denied the charge, but
Mahdi told a press conference
in London he fomented the coup
with help from Libya. He said he
would continue his efforts "to
restore their rights to the Su-
danes nonle."
