Khartoum - A woman who has come to symbolise protests in Sudan after being photographed chanting atop a car during protests against President Omar al-Bashir said on Thursday she has gotten death threats since her image went viral.
Clad in white, Alaa Salah can be seen poised above the crowds in Khartoum, where demonstrators gathered to demand the military hand over power to civilians.
The ouster on Thursday of Bashir, 75, followed months of protests against his rule.
"I wanted to get on the car and speak to the people," Salah, 22, an engineering and architecture student at Sudan International University, said on Twitter.
"We need international support, for people to be aware of what's happening and to understand our demands."
