More than eight years after the Arab Spring broke out in the Middle
East and North Africa, the autumn of the autocrats could be underway in
Sudan and Algeria.
Sudanese leader Omar al-Bashir was booted from power Thursday,
following a week in which thousands of protesters camped out in the
country’s capital, Khartoum.
Earlier this month, protests in Algeria prompted the country’s
president of 20 years, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, to resign.
The departures recalled the regional turmoil that brought down the
longtime rulers of Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen starting in 2011.
But developments since then have largely disappointed the Arab Spring
activists who helped overthrow those dictators.
