(BBC) Bashir says Sudan protests attempt to copy Arab Spring

Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir has said there are efforts to destabilize his country through an attempt to replicate the so-called Arab Spring.

He was speaking in Egypt’s capital Cairo after meeting his counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

It is his second foreign trip since protests began in December.

The protests started over cuts to bread and fuel subsidies but have since morphed into anger at Mr Bashir’s 30-year rule.
