Thousands of Sudanese Call for Dictator to Resign

Ad Feedback

Thousands of Sudanese are rising up in protest against dictator Omar al-Bashir, calling for him to resign as they chant "freedom" in the streets.

The street rally in Khartoum comes after dozens of protesters were killed during demonstrations.

"The protests will continue and will reach a general strike. This is our aim," said Ghazi al-Sanhouri, a nephew of a slain protester. "We will keep uncovering the regime's brutal tactics in suppressing the protests by killings and atrocities."

There are reports that more than 100 people have died at the hands of security forces. The government has imposed a media blackout across the country.
Bashir has ruled Sudan for 24 years and is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity in Darfur.

Religious rights groups also say he's been carrying out a genocidal war against Christians and black Africans in the south for decades.
