Sudan coup: Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok resigns after mass protests

Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has resigned after another day of mass protests rocked the capital Khartoum.

Thousands marched against a recent deal he had done to share power with the army, who staged a coup in October.

Chanting “power to the people”, protesters called for a return to full civilian rule. But military forces again responded with force, leaving two people dead.

Mr. Hamdok’s decision to quit leaves the army in full control.
