Sudan's Bashir moved to prison as doctors rally

Sudan's military rulers have transferred ousted president Omar al-Bashir to prison, a family source said Wednesday, as doctors marched through the capital to join a sit-in protest at the army complex

Khartoum, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - APP - 17th Apr, 2019 ) :Sudan's military rulers have transferred ousted president Omar al-Bashir to prison, a family source said Wednesday, as doctors marched through the capital to join a sit-in protest at the army complex.

Following the dramatic end to Bashir's rule of three decades last week, he was moved late Tuesday "to Kober prison in Khartoum", the source said without revealing his name for security reasons.

Witnesses near the prison in north Khartoum said there was a heavy deployment of soldiers and members of a paramilitary group outside.

The 75-year-old's whereabouts have been unknown since a military takeover on Thursday, when the country's new rulers said he was being held "in a secure place".

The detention of Bashir has failed to pacify protesters, who launched anti-government demonstrations in December and have for days been camped out in front of Khartoum's army headquarters.
