Security forces attempted to disperse protesters in Khartoum’s northern districts a day after at least 15 were killed by security forces at ongoing protests against last month’s military takeover.
The violence was reported in the capital Khartoum and other cities as thousands of pro-democracy protesters yet again took to the streets across Sudan to rally against the military’s takeover last month.
The anti-coup movement rejected power-sharing with the army and called for the establishment of a civilian government to lead a transition to democracy.
Sudan activists say that mediation initiatives which “seek a new settlement” between the military and civilian leaders would “reproduce and worsen” the country’s crisis.
While a coup ousted Sudan’s civilian government, anti-military protests continue. Here is an extensive interview with Khalid Mustafa Medani, a prominent Sudanese academic, on how things are evolving there.
Thousands of protesters returned to the streets to support the country's democratic transition which was derailed following a military takeover earlier this week.
With at least 11 protesters killed in clashes with security forces this week, opponents of the junta fear a full-blown crackdown and more bloodshed.
The announcement came as furious anti-coup protesters vowed to press ahead with a campaign of civil disobedience, following deadly clashes with security forces during demonstrations against a widely condemned military takeover.
The protests entered the fourth day as demonstrators rebuilt barricades demolished by security forces during overnight unrest.
"The decision to oust the government of Prime Minister Hamdok was taken in order to avoid a civil war," Sudan's ruling general Abdel Fattah al Burhan said.
