    Sudan has revoked the licence of the live-streaming channel of Al Jazeera's television network.

    Al Jazeera Mubasher said its team had been barred from working in Sudan, which had accused them of unprofessional coverage of opposition rallies.

    In November, Al Jazeera's Khartoum bureau chief was arrested and held for three days without charge.

    Activists say more than 60 people have been killed in a series of protests held against October's military coup.

    On Sunday, Sudanese doctors protested against what they said were attacks against medical personnel by the security forces during pro-democracy rallies.

    One doctor in Khartoum told AFP news agency that the security forces even fired tear gas in the hospitals.

    At least 10 people have been killed by suspected Islamist militants in northern Burkina Faso.

    Security officials said an armed group raided Namssiguian village in Bam province on Saturday.

    They burned down buildings, stole property and sabotaged a mobile phone mast so nobody could call for help.

    People are killed by insurgents almost every day in Burkina Faso, especially members of the security forces.

    Violent Islamism is intensifying across the Sahel despite the presence of international, regional and local forces.

    In recent years, it has spread south into Burkina Faso.
