Protest in Sudan - 7 people killed, dozens injured

At least 7 protesters were killed and dozens of people injured during another day of demonstrations against military rule in Sudan, medics and police said.

Huge crowds have regularly taken to the streets demanding a return to civilian rule since a coup on October 25 coup ended a power-sharing arrangement that began in 2019.

Unlike in previous protests, most bridges and roads were left open on Thursday amid a lower security presence in Khartoum after resistance committees rescheduled their protest from Wednesday. Internet and phone services continued to function.

Protesters were seen wearing protective goggles, hard hats, masks and gloves to protect them from teargas. Some pulled up bricks from sidewalks to form barricades.
