A prominent Sudanese opposition politician has been arrested, amid growing unrest over economic hardship.

Kamel Omar was taken from his home by unknown men who showed no warrant.

A government official said he was held for alleged links to Darfur rebels, as well as to the recent protests.

Sudan's economy has been struggling since newly-independent South Sudan halted oil production following a dispute over oil revenues.
