Soudan : un air de printemps

Au Soudan, cela fait bientôt un mois que des manifestants tiennent un sit-in devant le QG de l'armée à Khartoum, la capitale. Dans la foulée de la chute du président Omar el-Béchir le 11 avril 2019, ils exigent la fin du régime militaire au pouvoir depuis des décennies et la mise en place d'une démocratie. Nos reporters Bastien Renouil, Élodie Cousin et Julia Steers ont suivi trois acteurs de cette révolte, des Soudanais ordinaires qui se battent pour un avenir meilleur.

Au Soudan, un coup d'État militaire aura finalement mis fin aux 29 années de dictature d’Omar el-Béchir. À la suite d'un soulèvement populaire inédit, en décembre 2018, l'armée s'est mise à protéger les manifestants des services de sécurité loyaux à l'ancien chef d’État, avant de déclarer sa destitution le 11 avril dernier.
