Bashir’s trial over 1989 coup begins
The trial of the former president of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, has started in the capital Khartoum.
He is facing charges over the military coup that brought him to power in 1989.
If convicted, the former president - who ruled Sudan for 30 years - could face the death penalty.
Omar al-Bashir has also been indicted by the International Criminal Court for alleged war crimes and genocide in the western Darfur region.
He was overthrown last year after months of pro-democracy demonstrations.
