A Look at Cartoons by Sudanese Artist Khalid Albaih

Khalid Albaih says he is deeply saddened by the deaths this week of four fellow cartoonists who were gunned down at the office of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris.

Albaih has poked fun with his pen at South Sudanese President Salva Kiir, Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his cartoons. He has depicted Egyptian general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as a pharaoh and criticized the lack of rights in the Arab world. He has been threatened for his cartoons but says that, like the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, he has no intention of putting down his artist's pen.
