Sudanese forces use live ammunition to disperse anti-Bashir protests

Sudan protests

Two people were killed by police on Tuesday, while security forces were trying to disperse protesters outside the military command in Khartoum, Sudanese medical sources said.

In a statement on Facebook, the Central Sudanese Doctors Committee said security forces used live ammunition to disperse the protests, which left two people killed and others wounded, including security personnel. Some were seriously injured.

Confrontations occurred between the Sudanese military and the security troops as the latter was trying to forcibly disperse the protests outside the military command using tear gas bombs and ammunition.

In related news, the Sudanese Professional Gathering called on Sudanese people in Khartoum to take to streets and join those outside the military command.

They also urged using amplifiers at mosques to urge more people to join the protests.

Sudanese soldiers intervened for the first time on Monday to protect the protesters who call for ending rule of President Omar al-Bashir, after troops attempted dispersing the protests in central Khartoum.
