On Friday, Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir declared a state of emergency for one year and called a national dialogue amid political crisis in the north African country.

In the recent unrest, 10 opposition leaders were arrested after they staged a protest.

Sudan has been rocked by a wave of protests since December calling on al-Bashir, who seized power in a 1989 military coup, to step down. Activists say at least 57 people have been killed, but the government tally stands at 30.

It’s better for all Sudanese to solve any problems through dialogue…civil and armed opposition should come to the dialogue”, Al-Bashir delivered a telivised message.

Unrest in the nation began in mid-December in response to soaring living costs and has posed one of the biggest challenges to Al-Bashir, 75, in his near three decades in power.
