Security forces clashed with a pro-democracy demonstration held near Khartoum’s military headquarters as a result at least 13 people died and several others wounded in Sudan protest.
The military toppled President Omar al-Bashir from power in April and Transitional Military Council (TMC) has started ruling Sudan. However, TMC has rejected the claims of using force to disperse the protests.
TMC spokesperson Lt Gen Shams al-Din Kabbashi said that the security forces targeted the area close to military headquarters. The area reportedly becomes a threat for resident’s security due to corruption and negative practices, also a threat for protesters. The protesters were demanding for civilian rule in the country.
The security services reached the main protest site and gunfire heard. One of the main Khartoum’s hospitals has confirmed that eight dead bodies and injured shifted to their facility. Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors reported the death toll as 13 along with critically injured people. The demonstrators also burned tyres and set up barricades to keep away security forces in Sudan protest. Sudanese Professionals Association has put off all communication with TMC and request for a campaign to end the military rule.
