Sudanese government restores internet network for just one person

Intro

A Sudanese lawyer identifed as Abdel-Adheem confirmed to the BBC that the internet has been restored after a three-week shutdown but only for him.

On Sunday, Abdel-Adheem Hassan won a lawsuit against telecoms operator Zain Sudan over the blackout ordered by Sudan’s military rulers. However, he says his victory is only benefitting him so far as he filed the case in a personal capacity.

The internet was cut off after security forces violently dispersed protesters camping in central Khartoum. The protesters want an end to military rule following the coup against long-time leader Omar al-Bashir in April.
