Slavery is an issue in politics in the United States. A new bill on the issue is in the U.S. Congress. Activists have been calling for reparations for years. In 2016, a UN panel declared that the U.S. owed black Americans reparations because of slavery and its link to injustices today in America.

Tens of thousands of people are taking to the streets across Sudan today, as mass demonstrations continue against the shooting of school students in the North Kordofan State on Monday.
In the meantime, talks between a section of the opposition alliance and the military junta, which were set to resume on Tuesday, were put on hold.
