For Bashir, now the Sudan battle beginsHe may have easily secured another five years in power Monday, but President Omar al-Bashir still faces major challenges in solving Sudan's economic woes and ending its international isolation.Bashir, who won more than 94 percent of the vote, is also wanted by the International Criminal Court over war crimes in the western region of Darfur, curtailing his ability to travel abroad freely.Bashir has tried to distance himself from radical Islamism, but he is under international pressure over conflicts in Sudan's border regions and over repression of his political opponents.Holding talks on ending conflicts in border areas would ingratiate Khartoum with Washington, which placed Sudan on the state sponsors of terrorism list in 1993 .
