Sudan: Al-Bashir Moved to Prison as African Union Sets Deadline to Install Civilian Gov’t

HeadlineApr 17, 2019

In Sudan, ousted President Omar al-Bashir has been moved to a maximum-security prison. Al-Bashir was overthrown last week following a months-long popular uprising calling for his resignation. The African Union warned Sudan’s transitional military council Tuesday that they have 15 days to install a civilian government or face possible removal from the bloc. Protesters have been staging a massive sit-in in the capital Khartoum, demanding civilian rule.
