SUDAN: ichrheitstruppen stürmen Protestcamp infographic

Sudanesische Militärregierung stürmt Sitzstreik der Protestierenden

Graphic News

June 3, 2019 -- Sudanesische Sicherheitstruppen greifen ein Protestcamp in der Hauptstadt Khartoum an. Seit der Absetzung von Präsident Omar-al-Baschir im April ist es der erste Angriff auf die friedlichen Demonstranten.

The security forces opened fire, torching tents and killing at least 13 people, as they cleared away the months-old sit-in that was demanding the military yield power, witnesses and protest leaders said.

The camp has been the epicenter of a protest movement that first succeeded in forcing the overthrow of Bashir.

The Forces for Declaration of Freedom and Change, which represents the protesters in transition negotiations with the ruling generals, called for toppling the military council and urged people to take to the streets in protest.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
