Security forces fire tear gas as more protests hit Sudanese cities


Security forces fire tear gas as more protests hit Sudanese citiesSecurity forces fired tear gas to disperse demonstrators who marched after noon prayers in the Sudanese capital Khartoum on Friday to demand that President Omar al-Bashir step down from 30 years in power. Anti-government protests first flared last month and have posed the most serious challenge yet to Bashir, a former army general who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for alleged war crimes in the Darfur region. In previous weeks, demonstrations have begun only after sundown and the number of people at this Friday's protests appeared smaller than in the past.
