SUDAN (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The Sudanese Ministry of Information on Sunday confirmed that the Transitional Military Council has issued a decree to repeal laws restricting freedoms.

The military junta on Thursday (April 11th) severed Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir and placed him under house arrest, under months of popular protests demanding the overthrow of the 30-year-old regime.
