Several opposition figures in Sudan who are currently being held in jail are in urgent need of medical attention, according to a UN independent expert on the situation of human rights in the country.

Mashood Baderin, who is a Law Professor at the University of London, has just concluded an eight-day mission to Sudan which took him to the capital, Khartoum, and to Darfur state.

Speaking on the line from Khartoum, he tells UN Radio's Dianne Penn that although numerous challenges persist, Sudan has made progress in the area of human rights since his first official visit in June 2012.
