Nationwide protests have been taking place in Sudan almost every day for a month.
They are the longest in decades and the most significant in the country’s recent history.
The demonstrations were prompted by a rise in bread and fuel prices. But the protesters quickly turned their attention to other issues and are now demanding the resignation of President Omar al-Bashir.
Bashir’s response has been a crackdown by security forces. Dozens of people have been killed and hundreds arrested in recent weeks.
How far can the protests go? And will international pressure make a difference?
