[VIDEO] Sudan: 37 Killed as Protests Call for an End to Omar al-Bashir’s Rule

In Sudan, human rights groups say government forces have killed at least 37 people as protesters continue to demand the ouster of longtime authoritarian President Omar al-Bashir. On Tuesday, government forces opened fire with tear gas and live ammunition on peaceful protesters in the capital Khartoum as they chanted, “The people want to bring down the regime”—a popular slogan during the Arab Spring uprisings. Similar scenes have played out in cities across Sudan in recent days. The protests erupted after al-Bashir’s government ended subsidies for fuel and wheat, causing bread prices to triple—even as Sudan’s inflation rate nears 70 percent.
