Sudan: Protests Demanding Ouster of President Omar al-Bashir Spread

HeadlineJan 25, 2019

In Sudan, anti-government protests continued to grow in size and scope Thursday, with demonstrators in several key cities calling on the authoritarian President Omar al-Bashir to step down after three decades of rule. A 24-year-old man died Thursday from wounds he received at an earlier protest near the capital Khartoum, raising the official death toll since protests erupted in mid-December to 29. Rights groups say more than 40 people have been killed by security forces and pro-government militias firing tear gas and live ammunition.
