Two dead in new demonstrations in Khartoum

Two Sudanese protesters have been killed during fresh demonstrations in different areas of the capital, Khartoum.

The Central Committee of Sudanese doctors said in a statement that a protester was killed “after being hit by live ammunition in the processions of the Al-Kalakla area”, in the south of Khartoum.
Later, the committee announced that a second protester had died “as a result of suffocation with tear gas in the Al-Kalakla area” itself.

In turn, the committee said this brings the death toll from the protests to 98, since the start of the protests, which have been going on regularly since October 25, 2021.
For its part, the United Nations, together with the African Union, is seeking to facilitate talks between the Sudanese parties to resolve the crisis.

It should be noted that Sudan has been experiencing since October 25 (2021) a political crisis between the civil and military components, which has led to the dissolution of the government and the imposition of a state of emergency.

It also prompted some civilian bodies and the coordination of the time to embark on a series of protests that are still repeated from time to time.

In addition, these exceptional measures imposed by the armed forces have taken place, American criticism and international calls for their lifting and the formation of a civilian government in the country.

The military component has claimed that it is not clinging to power and wants to hand over power completely after new elections are held in the country.
