CAIRO | Sudanese flood Khartoum streets, demanding president go
CAIRO — Thousands took to the streets in the Sudanese capital on Sunday to call for President Omar al-Bashir to step down, the latest in nearly three weeks of demonstrations against his 29-year autocratic rule.
Protesters gathered at several points across Khartoum before they began to march on al-Bashir’s Nile-side palace in the city center. They chanted: “Freedom, peace and justice; Revolution is the people’s choice.”
Police used tear gas to disperse the protesters, who would regroup and resume the march only to be attacked by tear gas again.
