People living in the eastern Sudanese Red Sea state are complaining of a shortage of drinking water for nearly nine months. "There is no indication that the water problem will be solved soon," activist Amin Sinada told Radio Dabanga from the Port Sudan, the capital of Red Sea state. "The crisis may become even worse, as the commercial water prices are increasing." He accused state officials of being behind the interruption of drinking water supplies to residential districts. "They are using the water for their personal benefits."
