Military leaders in Sudan announced earlier this week that they would work with the opposition alliance, the Declaration of Freedom and Change Forces (DFCF), for a three-year period to transition governance to a civilian administration. This move comes after protests led to the ousting of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir in April. Now, however, the transition in Sudan has been put on hold amid significant violence. On Wednesday, at least nine protesters were injured; Sudanese forces reportedly fired live ammunition at demonstrators in Khartoum. Joining us to discuss the rapidly unfolding events in Sudan is Alden Young. Young is an historian and director of Africana Studies at Drexel University.
