What's keeping Sudan's president in power? [Video]

By Alajzeera

Anger at the high price of bread and fuel sparked mass protests in Sudan last December.

Four months on, the rallies have evolved into demands for an end to the 30 year rule of President Omar Al Bashir.

For the first time, protesters got as far as army headquarters in Khartoum, where the president has a home.

Some soldiers stepped in to protect demonstrators against tear gas from riot police and intelligence service agents.

However, army commanders have so far resisted calls to help remove Bashir.

So what's keeping the president in power?
