Trial of Suspects for 1989 Coup in Sudan Begins

Sudan's former President Omar al-Bashir appeared in court on Tuesday (July21, 2020) for the start of his trial over the coup through which he seized power in 1989. The hearing was adjourned until 11 August so the trial can be moved to a larger venue. Bashir arrived at court in Khartoum wearing a white shirt, face mask and plastic gloves, and surrounded by security officials.
