I won’t step down, says President Albashir of Sudan

Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir msintaibed that he would not step down from power on Monday.

His response came after weeks of violent protests and calls for him to quit over a worsening economic crisis.

“The government does not change through demonstrations,” Bashir said, speaking to supporters in Nyala, the main city in South Darfur, a day after protesters demonstrated there for the first time.

“We said we have an economic problem and it is not solved via vandalism,” he said.

Protests have rippled across Sudan since Dec. 19 in the most sustained challenge
yet to Bashir’s close to 30-year rule.

Security forces have used live ammunition to disperse demonstrations.

The official death toll stands at 24.
Amnesty International has said that at
least 40 people have been killed.
