Mohamed Hamdan "Hemeti" Dagolo is the vice-president of Sudan's ruling military junta and, at present, probably the most powerful man in Sudan. 

He has the potential to shape the future of a broken country, but as the commander of one of Sudan's most prominent paramilitary forces, he leaves a trail of human rights abuse allegations from Darfur in his wake and has recently been accused of allowing those same forces to kill demon...

(CNN)When anti-government protests erupted in Sudan at the end of last year, the response of President Omar al-Bashir came straight from the dictators' playbook -- a crackdown that led to scores of civilian deaths.

At the same time, a more insidious strategy was being developed -- one that involved spreading misinformation on social media, blaming Israel for fomenting the unrest, and even carrying out public executions to make...

Darfur Women Action Group welcomes the small victory for the 4-month long protests. However, we are extremely concerned about the deceptive process of the transfer of power to the military group, led by officials who supported and condoned the past deeds of al-Bashir. For example, Defense Minister Awad Ibn Auf, who just recently stepped down due to continued public protest, has been subject to the US sanction for his direct ro...

One of the world’s most brutal dictators has just fallen. What comes next is key.

Sudan’s long-time president, Omar al Bashir — among the world’s most ruthless rulers — was arrested yesterday in a military coup that followed four months of popular protests in Khartoum, the country’s capital. Whatever other charges he will face for terror and corruption, he should be promptly tried for his worst offense: genocide.

In 70 years sin...

Sudanese pro-democracy protesters who spent four months on the streets rallying against the country’s autocratic president are now defying the military leaders who overthrew him on Thursday.

Thousands kept up their sit-in outside the military headquarters in Khartoum overnight and into Friday morning despite a curfew imposed by the army after the arrest of Omar al-Bashir.

Organisers of the demonstration said they would keep...

President Omar Hassan al-Bashir loved to tell the story about his broken tooth.
