Written by on March 6, 2019

Sudanese authorities, on Tuesday released a senior opposition leader who had been detained since December in connection with demonstrations against President Omar al-Bashir’s rule.
Omar el-Digeir, the chief of the opposition Sudanese Congress Party, was arrested and jailed days following protests that erupted on December 19 after a government decision to triple the price of bread.
The authorities launched a widespread crackdown to curb the protests as they mushroomed into nationwide demonstrations against Bashir, who swept to power in an Islamist-backed coup in 1989.
