👉 News outlets say Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has resigned after nearly four months of demonstrations against his autocratic 30-year rule.
Both the Associated Press and Reuters say they have learned from government sources that the 75-year-old ruler will step down and that consultations are underway to form a transitional council.
Reports of al-Bashir’s ouster came hours after Sudan’s state-controlled television said the army will make an “important statement” sometime Thursday, but offered no details about the upcoming message.
