Thousands of Sudanese protesters marched near President Omar al-Bashir's residence in central Khartoum on Saturday. It appeared to be the biggest demonstration in months of protest against his 30-year rule. They waved Sudanese flags and chanted slogans demanding "freedom, peace and justice" while they gathered outside the gates of the compound.

that compound also houses the defence ministry, army command and security headquarters. the wave of protests that began on Dec. 19 were triggered by price rises and cash shortages but evolved into demonstrations against his long rule.
