Why Sudan coup may not change much for a country in crisis

Clip: 04/11/2019 | 9m 20s

The Sudanese military has ousted Omar al-Bashir after 30 years of rule, declaring a two-year transitional government before elections are held. But a military regime won't satisfy the demonstrators demanding a civilian government. Nick Schifrin talks to McGill University professor Khalid Medani about whether the coup represents only an "internal rift" that won't introduce meaningful change.
