Nimeiri Ousted in Sudan
General Nimeiri was ousted in the Sudan after serving as head of government since 1969. Nimeiri fought to suppress a rebellion in the non-Muslim south. He imposed Islamic law, but lost almost all support. In April, a military revolt led by Defense Minister Abdel Raham Siwar el-Dahab removed Nimeiri from power.
