Anti-government protests first flared last month and have posed the most serious challenge yet to Bashir, a former army general who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for alleged war crimes in the Darfur region.

At least 22 people have been killed and hundreds wounded in the protests, which were sparked by anger over rising food prices and cash shortages but quickly turned against Bashir’s government. The crackdown drew a rare rebuke from the state-funded human rights commission.

Friday’s protests appeared to have drawn more people than before and were more widespread. In previous weeks the protests began only after sundown.

Reuters witnesses said security forces used tear gas against dozens of demonstrators in al-Halfaya Bahri in the south of Khartoum and against a separate demonstration by dozens of people emerging from Sayed Abdel Rahman Mosque in Omdurman, which sits on the other side of the River Nile from the capital.
Hopefully more Sudanese people find the courage to stand in unison with their fellow people to oust this genocidal megalomaniac. Getting rid of this Islamist, Saudi stooge would do so much good for the region.
