CARL AZUZ: There's a new movie
being produced about Fridays.

And it's already
been rated awesome.

I'm Carl Azuz happily presenting
Friday's edition of "CNN 10."

We're taking you to
Northeastern Africa

first, where there's
been a military coup

in the nation of Sudan.
Its former president,
Omar al-Bashir,

had been in power
for three decades.

But on Thursday, the
nation's minister of defense

announced that Bashir's
government had been dissolved

and that the military would take
charge of Sudan for two years

until a transition
of power is complete.

The country's constitution
has been suspended.

Its lawmaking body has
been stripped of power.

In an effort to
maintain peace in Sudan,

a curfew has been put in
place and a state of emergency

has been declared
for three months.

Reporters in Sudan say
former President Bashir is

alive and under house arrest.
And dozens of other
government officials

have also been arrested.
Protests in the African country
had been going on for months.

They began as a demonstration
against the rising

costs of living in Sudan.
But protesters then called for
Bashir's removal from office.

There were massive
rallies and sit-ins

at military installations.
And with armed groups getting
involved in recent days,

violence flared up.
A Sudanese medical
group says 22 people,

including five soldiers,
had been killed

in protests over the past week.
Reports from social
media and other witnesses

indicated that celebrations
were happening as the news

spread of the Bashir's removal.
But one protest group is
calling for Sudanese civilians

to keep up the
demonstrations until power is

given to a civilian government.
ROBYN CURNOW: Omar al-Bashir
seized power in Sudan

through a military coup in 1989.
He went on to dissolve
the government,

all political parties,
and trade unions.

His harsh rule over
his people eventually

amounted to the
International Criminal Court

issuing an arrest warrant
for the Sudanese leader.

Bashir is wanted for crimes
against humanity, war crimes,

and genocide for atrocities
allegedly committed in Sudan's

Western Darfur region.
Bashir is accused of enlisting
a brutal Arab militia

called the Janjaweed
to quell unrest

against his rule in the region.
He denied the ICC's allegations
and disputed reports

that tens of thousands
of people were killed

or displaced by the fighting.

thing is that we don't agree

with these numbers, neither
the number of deaths

or the number of
those displaced.

We estimate that
the number of deaths

on all sides from the
rebels and the government

to not exceed 5,000 deaths.
The displaced, of course, all
those numbers are exaggerated.

The actual numbers are a
lot less than those given.

ROBYN CURNOW: The arrest
warrant issued in 2009 led

to an international travel ban.
Despite this, countries
such as Egypt, South Africa,

and Saudi Arabia still allowed
him to make diplomatic visits.

In the bloody, decades-long
civil war waged

between the country's
north and south,

a peace agreement was
signed that led to South

Sudan's secession in 2011.
The two countries
continued to fight though

in cross-border
skirmishes for control

of the country's disputed
and lucrative oil reserves.

Despite international
condemnation and the ICC arrest

warrant, Bashir continued to
win elections in his country

in 2010 and 2015.
However, many political
parties boycotted those polls.

But any signs of
internal dissent,

such as these
anti-government protests

that started in
December 2018, have

been ruthlessly put down by
his security forces until now.

Omar al-Bashir was
often captured on camera

wearing his military uniform
in public appearances,

his time in power constantly
characterized by war.

Robyn Curnow, CNN.
CARL AZUZ: 10-second trivia.
Which of these nations
borders the Bay of Bengal?

India, Pakistan,
Thailand, or Vietnam?

Bengal used to be a
province of India.

And the Bay of Bengal is on
the country's east coast.

The South Asian country of
India has begun the process

of holding a national election.
But it's not something
that can be done in a day.

Even though India is
about a third the size

of the United States,
its population

is almost four times bigger.
And the results of that election
that started on Thursday

aren't expected until late May.
To keep elections
fair and safe, polling

is done in seven phases around
different regions of India.

So not every part of the
country votes at once.

And though the political party
of the nation's current leader

won a landslide victory in
2014, incumbent Prime Minister

Narendra Modi may
be facing a closer

contest this time around.
The challenges faced by
farmers, unemployment

among young workers, tensions
with neighboring Pakistan,

all of these are issues
in this election.

NIKHIL KUMAR: And so it begins.
Indians will start
voting Thursday

in the first phase of the
country's general elections,

a closely fought contest in
which Prime Minister Narendra

Modi is seeking re-election.
Modi and his party,
the Janata Party,

are being challenged in
different parts of the country

by a number of other
parties, including

the principal opposition
Congress, led by Rahul Gandhi.

The polls are spread
out over several weeks.

There are seven phases in all.
And the results won't be
out until the 23rd of May.

The reason?
Because of the colossal size
of this democratic exercise,

the largest in the world.
Across India, around 900 million
people are eligible to vote.

And that's not the
only staggering number.

There are around a
million polling stations,

and some 10 million
officials are

involved in making
sure the process

is completed successfully.
The vast human resources
involved, as well

as the logistics of
moving everything

around this
continent-sized country

is why voting is so spread out.
On Thursday, voters in
sections of the north,

the east, and the south will get
a chance to cast their ballots.

Among the area's going to
the polls in the first phase

are sections of northern
Uttar Pradesh state,

easily the most consequential
of all Indian states,

with a population of
around 200 million people.

Their votes could be key to
deciding whether Mr. Modi gets

a second term or if things
are about to change in what is

the world's largest democracy.
Nikhil Kumar, CNN, New Delhi.
CARL AZUZ: If you live in bear
country and you have a car,

it's probably a good idea
to keep your doors locked.

The woman who owns this vehicle
in Breckenridge, Colorado

would tell you that.
It was parked, but
apparently not locked up.

And a bear, probably
a small one,

recently broke into
the car one night

and then proceeded to
utterly destroy it.

Maybe he thought it
was his home because it

was a Subaru Forester.
The intruder did find something
worthwhile in the backseat--

a single package of gummy
bears, which he also destroyed.

It's terrible.
It's unbearable.
But at least the
video's shareable.

An unlocked door
near the forest floor

makes for a cautionary parable.
He had cause for it.
He had claws for it.
He smelled a sweet snack
and had to pause for it.

It shows how a
bear is an animal.

But does eating gummies
make him a cannibal?

Food for thought on "CNN 10."
And I'm Carl Azuz, hoping
your weekend is bear-ific.
