Qué sigue para Sudán tras la destitución de su líder desde hace treinta años. Omar al Bashir, quien está acusado de delitos de lesa humanidad ante la Corte Penal Internacional y enfrentaba fuertes protestas desde diciembre, fue forzado a dimitir ayer por el ejército sudanés. Lee nuestro recuento de cómo Al Bashir llegó al poder y los eventos que produjeron su caída.

Sudan’s military takes control

The country’s defense secretary, Lt. Gen. Awad Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Auf, announced a two-year transition period after the military ousted President Omar Hassan al-Bashir on Thursday, ending his 30-year authoritarian rule in the face of mass street protests.
Mr. al-Bashir, 75, is wanted by the International Criminal Court in connection with a genocide in the Darfur region that killed hundreds of thousands of people.
What’s next: Protesters’ jubilation has been tempered by uncertainty about the future. The military dissolved the government and suspended the Constitution. A curfew between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. is in effect. The defense minister who took over had also been accused of perpetrating war crimes and was a confidant of Mr. al-Bashir.

Go deeper: Mr. al-Bashir has long promoted a folksy image at home that was a jarring contrast with his image in the West, where he was seen as a heartless warmonger and as a coddler of terrorists like Osama bin Laden.
