Gunfire was heard and casualties were reported in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum on Monday, as security forces reportedly attempted to disperse a sit-in protest outside the Defence Ministry in the city centre.
The number of casualties varies across sources, with the Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors reporting that several demonstrators had died.
A large number of troops have reportedly... Еще been dispatched to the protest site.
A Transitional Military Council (TMC) has been running Sudan after ousting President Omar Al-Bashir in April, following mass protests against his 30-year rule. Thousands of protests have camped outside the Defence Ministry, demanding a transition to civilian rule.
