Sudan released opposition leader Hassan Turabi without charges after questioning him about a Darfur rebel attack on the capital, Khartoum, according to his party and state media.

Turabi and at least 10 other members of his Popular Congress Party members were detained in a government sweep across the city, said Awadh Ba Bakr, a relative and close aide to Turabi.
