KHARTOUM, Sudan, Oct. 4 (UPI) — Revolution may be coming to Sudan if the current administration of Omar al-Bashir maintains its grip on power, a member of the opposition said.

Bashir’s government in Khartoum came under fire for a crackdown on protesters frustrated with last month’s decision to cut fuel subsidies. At least 50 Sudanese civilians were killed allegedly by government forces during the effort to quiet demonstrations.

Hassan al-Turabi, leader of the opposition Popular Congress Party, told al-Arabiya it was time for Bashir to step down.
