Is the government of Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir unravelling?

Hospitals and medical professionals are coming under attack as weeks-long anti-government protests continue. What’s next for the country?

Sudanese protesters shout slogans against Sudan''s President Omar al-Bashir as they demonstrate outside the closed Sudanese embassy in Sanaa, Yemen

Demonstrations over cuts to bread and fuel subsidies in Sudan have grown into a movement aimed at ending President Omar al-Bashir’s 30-year rule. Hospitals and medical professionals are coming under fire, and the family of one slain doctor, Babiker Abdulhemeed, says he was shot dead by government security forces while treating patients.

In this episode of The Take, host Imtiaz Tayb speaks to Al Jazeera correspondent Mohamed Vall about covering the story. He also speaks with Sulafa Abdulhemeed – Babiker’s sister, also a doctor – about the loss of her brother and the country’s uncertain future.
