Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir says his country is in crisis but is refusing to accept blame for the political unrest.
Protesters have been calling on al-Bashir to step down for the past 11 days.
According to Amnesty International, at least 39 people have been killed in the subsequent crackdown on protests.
Abdelwahab El-Affendi, professor of politics at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies and former Sudanese diplomat, talks to Al Jazeera about what is causing the protests in Sudan to spread and the government’s harsh crackdown.
