Sudan: PM Abdalla Hamdok resigns after protests


Sudan’s prime minister has resigned after days of mass protests demanding an end to military rule.

Thousands of people took to the streets of Khartoum again today, as security forces opened fire on the crowds, killing three people.

The premier, Abdalla Hamdok, said he had tried to stop Sudan “sliding into disaster”, but it had reached a “dangerous turning point”.

It means the army are now in full control.
