Sudan Restores Internet ‘For Only One Person’

A lawyer in Sudan has told the BBC that the internet has been restored after a three-week shut-down – but only for him.

Sudan’s military rulers ordered an internet blackout after they violently dispersed protesters camping in central Khartoum who were demanding they leave power.

The lawyer, Abdel-Adheem Hassan (in featured photo), won a lawsuit over the blackout against telecoms operator Zain Sudan on Sunday.

However, he says he filed the case in a personal capacity so the victory is only benefiting him.

That means he is currently the only civilian in the country able to access the internet without resorting to complicated hacks.

He said he was going back to court on Tuesday to win the right for more Sudanese people.

BBC has more details.
