In the Teddygate protests in Khartoum, how many people took to the streets?

(a) Thousands, says the BBC. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/7121025.stm)

(b) Hundreds, says CNN. (http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/africa/11/30/sudan.bears/index.html?eref=yahoo)

Ah, today the BBC has changed it to "Crowds" ...

I hadn't heard about this until a joke about it on Have I got News for You. Generally these days I find that comedy shows are the best places to get the "news". Or, rather, comedy provides a saner context than the pomposity of typical news presentation.
