Omar al-Bashir, Sudan's long-running dictator (since 1989), a figure who is internationally wanted for perpetrating the Darfur Genocide, has been ousted in a coup d'etat by the Sudanese military, whose head is now the national leader of Sudan. A two-year transitional period has been announced, with intent to stage elections sometime soon. Reportedly he is still alive, but his fate is uncertain. Whether he'll be handed over to the International Criminal Court (ICC) to face justice remains to be seen.
