Arman: Omar al-Bashir 'politically dead'

Sudanese opposition politician Yasir Arman says the president's 30 year rule will come to an end.

He told Hardtalk's Zeinab Badawi: “I am very sure the Sudanese people, they will change this regime and there are new social forces that are coming into the political scene and I think the story of Bashir has ended."

Omar al-Bashir has won elections several times since coming to power in a coup in 1989. But there have been protests from opposition groups who want him to step down.
