Sudanese demonstrators shot and killed amid large protests – report

Nazim Sirag, a Sudanese activist who coordinates medical assistance to individuals protesting military rule, reports on his Facebook page that two people had been shot and killed by security forces.

This has not been independently verified, and the authorities have made no statement at the time of writing.

The reported shootings come after security police blasted tear gas at thousands of protesters in Khartoum’s capital.

This is the latest in a series of protests that have occurred since October’s coup, in which military forces seized power and arrested the civilian prime minister only one month before Sudan’s scheduled transition to a civilian head of state.

There have been a number of crackdowns on perceived opposition in recent days, including the suspension of Al Jazeera Live TV and the use of tear gas in hospitals.
