Reuters news agency reports that the authorities in Sudan have removed accreditation from two journalists, meaning that they will not be allowed to report on events in the protest-hit country.

One of the two journalists works for Saudi-owned Al Arabiya, Reuters adds. The affiliation of the other journalist has not been confirmed.

"The foreign information council has observations on the performance of the Al Arabiya correspondent and the freeze will continue until a review of both journalists' status is carried out," Reuters quotes Sudan's external information council, which deals with foreign media organisations, as saying.
