Massive protests continue in Sudan despite government crackdown. Plus, India’s media and the Ambani brothers.
For the first time on Saturday, protesters got as far as army headquarters in the capital, Khartoum, a complex which also houses al-Bashir’s residence.
Some soldiers stepped in to protect demonstrators against tear gas from riot police and intelligence service agents. However, army commanders have so far resisted calls to help remove al-Bashir.
What’s keeping the president in power?
