Sudan protests turn deadly

Dozens of protesters are killed as Sudanese security forces launch a violent crackdown and break up a two-months-long sit-in outside army headquarters in Khartoum. The bloodshed is the worst since Omar al-Bashir was overthrown in April. Demonstrators, though, remain defiant in their calls for civilian rule.


Also, a man convicted in connection to the murder of human rights activist Floribert Chebeya in 2010 says he’s now willing to return to DR Congo from Senegal to help with any future investigation. Paul Mwilambwe accuses police of having orchestrated Chebeya’s killing.
