Government troops were spotted on the streets of Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, on January 11 as clashes between government forces and protesters were reported. Demonstrations against Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir, fueled by shortages of bread and foreign currency, have been ongoing since December, and have led to crackdowns, with security forces firing tear gas and live ammunition to disperse protesters. More than 40 people have been killed in the protests. Al-Bashir has been in power since 1989. A constitutional amendment proposed this month would allow him to retain his position past the end of his term in 2020. This footage was described as showing government troops on Eastern Kalakla Road in Khartoum. Credit: @Fuqa3a via Storyful
