Sudan: Protests Resume as Moves for Political Deal Falter

Source: US News & World Report

“Security forces fired tear gas and stun grenades at protesters who rallied against Sudan’s military rulers on Thursday, as diplomatic moves to broker a political solution to a post-coup crisis showed little sign of progress. Thousands marched towards the presidential palace in Khartoum amid high temperatures and a heavy security presence, in the first major demonstration since the fasting month of Ramadan and the biggest turnout for several weeks. … Talks organised by the United Nations and the African Union that were expected to launch this week have stumbled, amid heavy criticism from parts of the military and civil society. Khartoum resistance committees on Wednesday signed a charter setting out their vision for ending military rule, inviting political parties to join.” (05/12/22)
