AssociatedPress: Three months after Sudanese protesters rose up against President Omar al-Bashir, the longtime autocrat has bound himself more tightly to the military and refuses to bow to their demands. The wily 74-year-old has remained in power through three decades of war and sanctions, the secession of Sudan’s oil-rich south in 2011 and an international arrest warrant for genocide and war crimes linked to the Darfur conflict. But since December he has faced the biggest protests of his long rule, with political parties and unions demanding his removal and demonstrators chanting slogans from the 2011 Arab Spring.
