Sudanese killed in anti-military protests


A Sudanese doctors’ union said a protester was killed during anti-military demonstrations on Wednesday in Khartoum Bahri, after security forces used excessive force.

“A martyr, who was not identified, has died after he was shot in the chest by the forces of darkness”, the Central Council of Sudanese Doctors (CCSD) said in a statement on Facebook.

The doctors said that the security forces “used excessive force, thinking they could silence the growing revolution”.

The CCSD said “this brings the death toll to 103”, as a result of the crackdown against the pro-democracy demonstrations prompted by the last October’s military coup.

Activists have planned another nationwide protest for Thursday to press for civilian rule.

Reports say authorities have already taken a number of measures ahead of the protests, including the deployment of security forces, closure of bridges, and a possible disconnection of the Internet.
