Sudan: governement holds meeting amid protests

Sudan’s cabinet will hold an extraordinary meeting on Monday amid an escalating political row between factions of the ruling Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC).

Pro-military Sudanese protesters rallied for a second day on Sunday, aggravating what civilian Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok called the “worst and most dangerous crisis” of the country’s precarious transition, BBC News reports.

The protesters gathered outside the presidential palace in central Khartoum demanding the dissolution of Sudan’s post-dictatorship interim government, saying it has failed them politically and economically.
