Sudanese military kills dozens with crackdown on protesters

Clip: 06/04/2019 | 4m 21s

Sudanese security forces attacked a protest camp in the country’s capital Monday, opening fire, torching tents and killing dozens of people. The months-old sit-in protest forced out Sudan’s ruler in April, but since then, negotiations around what government will succeed him have stalled. John Yang talks to Michael Georgy of Reuters about what sparked the crackdown and what’s at stake.
