How will the military in Sudan deal with unrest? | Inside Story
Al Jazeera, 05 Jan 2022
Sudan is again in turmoil following the resignation of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.
That's come less than two months after he was reinstated under a deal with the military.
The senior military leader - General Abdel Fattah Al Burhan - is calling for an urgent caretaker government and new measures to deal with demonstrations.
Pro-democracy groups say the military should stay out of government.
A deadlock between all sides has left the country unable to transition from dictatorship to democracy since the ousting of longtime ruler Omar Al Bashir in 2019.
Could a new power-sharing deal be the way out?
