Military coups are yet again becoming a common occurrence in Africa. After recent military takeovers in Mali, Chad and Guinea it was the turn of Sudan.
Last September, a group of Sudanese army officers purportedly loyal to deposed President Omar al-Bashir led a failed military coup. This week we are focusing on the alleged military coup in Sudan and the political and the economic crisis in this country which has also abandoned its long-term support for the Palestinian resistance. We shall also look at how employees of the World Health Organization have been involved in sexual abuse in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
