Demonstrations over cuts to bread and fuel subsidies in Sudan have grown into a movement aimed at ending President Omar al-Bashir’s 30-year rule. Hospitals and medical professionals are coming under fire, and the family of one slain doctor, Babiker Abdulhemeed, says he was shot dead by government security forces while treating patients.
In this episode of The Take, host Imtiaz Tayb speaks to Al Jazeera correspondent Mohamed Vall about covering the story. He also speaks with Sulafa Abdulhemeed – Babiker’s sister, also a doctor – about the loss of her brother and the country’s uncertain future.
This episode was produced by Amy Walters, Morgan Waters, Dina Kesbeh and Imtiaz Tyab. The sound designer is Ian Coss. The show’s lead producer is Graelyn Brashear. Special thanks to Mohamed Vall, Mogdad Alseir and Ashraf Ibrahim Osman in Khartoum.
