KHARTOUM - A Sudanese newspaper run by an uncle of President Omar al-Bashir has been suspended again after printing just one edition following an earlier ban, the publisher said Monday.

The blocking of Al-Saiha comes after it published on Sunday commentary critical of Bashir's national dialogue.

The dialogue, announced in January, is aimed at resolving multiple crises in the impoverished, war-ravaged nation. But the arrest of political figures and continued press censorship has raised questions about the regime's commitment to reform.

"Our newspaper was suspended indefinitely" by state security agents, Al-Saiha publisher Al-Tayeb Mustafa told AFP.

The daily returned to the streets on Sunday after a ban lasting weeks.
