Sudan’s former president Omar al-Bashir has been charged over the killing of protesters during the anti-government demonstrations that led to the end of his decades-long rule.
In a statement on Monday, the office of Sudan’s acting prosecutor general said “al-Bashir and others have been charged for inciting and participating in the killing of demonstrators”.
Earlier this month, the prosecutor ordered al-Bashir to be interrogated on charges of money laundering and financing terrorism.
There has been no comment from the former president since his removal and arrest on April 11.
The announcement of charges came as Sudanese protesters and the country’s military rulers resumed negotiations on handing power to a civilian administration.
