Sudan protests: Three dead in ‘bread protests’

Sudan’s government has cut subsidies on wheat imports, driving the price of bread up and the Sudanese to the streets to protest against their rising cost of living.

Three people have died in protests against the rising cost of basic foods in Sudan.

Protests sparked after the government decided to cut subsidies, which led to the increase in prices.

The finance minister says black-market manipulation is the reason behind the recent spike, but analysts blame the government’s policies.
