[ISS] Sudan offers a laboratory for students of the coup. It has had 15 attempts, five of them successful - more than any other country on a continent that has itself seen more coups than any other region of the world. And on 21 July, Sudan made history again by putting its deposed president Omar al-Bashir on trial for leading the 1989 military coup that brought him to power.
