Anger over the rising price of bread in Sudan

Hentet fra AL Jazeera 9.1.2018

Sudan’s government is warning protesters they will be confronted with force if they do not stop.

Calling them «bread protests» makes the demonstrations in Sudan sounds rather harmless.

But at least two people were killed in the outcry against rising prices this week.

The government has warned demonstrators that acts of destruction will be met with force.

Security forces have already been firing tear gas at protesters, as well as arresting opposition leaders and confiscating newspapers.

That does not seem to have stopped the unrest. So what might come next?
