Sudan’s al-Bashir cracks down on protests

President Omar al-Bashir outlaws any protest without a permit amid other measures intended to stifle ongoing anti-government protests in Sudan.

Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir has added a series of decrees to the year-long state of emergency that he declared earlier.

The decrees banned gatherings and protests without a permit and increase police powers amid continuing anti-government protests.

Opposition parties have said it is an attempt to crack down on anyone who does not agree with al-Bashir and many protesters have vowed to defy the ban.
