Bashir faces challenges after Sudan unrest

Though female protesters have been released from jail the president faces many challenges, not least from his own party.

    Sudan says it has freed female prisoners detained after two weeks of fuel protests in September.

    At least 50 people were killed in what became the worst unrest of President Omar al-Bashir's 24 years in power.

    Peace has now returned, but challenges to the president remain - not least from within his own party.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
