Sudanese President Jaafar Numeiri said he thwarted a plot last month by Muslim fundamentalists, supplied with arms by Iran, to overthrow his pro-American government. Numeiri, interviewed in Washington after meeting with President Reagan, accused the Muslim Brotherhood of plotting against the Sudan government. He blamed the brotherhood for last week's food price riots in Khartoum, the capital. On March 10, Numeiri ordered the arrest of more than 160 members of the group.
