Is Sudan seeing a second uprising?

Protesters take to the streets again, angry at the worsening economy and accusing the government of failures.

Soaring bread prices led to last year’s uprising in Sudan. Now, more than a year after the removal of long-time ruler Omar al-Bashir, the economic crisis has deepened.

Prices have skyrocketed, food and fuel are in short supply, and unemployment has surged.

People are back on the streets protesting their dire living conditions. They blame the transitional government for failing to revive the economy.

And accuse the army of extending its power over most institutions. But can these protests lead to change this time?
