Demonstrations — including a massive sit-in outside the military headquarters in the capital, Khartoum — persisted over the weekend against Sudan’s ruling military council, which took control of the country after deposing al-Bashir.
Many protesters see the military’s grip on power as merely a continuation of al-Bashir’s authoritarian regime. The 75-year-old ruled Sudan for 30 years and faces international war crimes charges for his role in the genocide in the country’s western region of Darfur.
Protesters saw some victories over the weekend, though it’s not clear how substantial or deep they will be.
Sudan’s former President Omar al-Bashir has been moved to Kobar maximum security prison, days after he was deposed in a military coup.
Reports say the ex-leader has until now been detained at the presidential residence under heavy guard.
He is reportedly being held in solitary confinement and is surrounded by tight security.
