Sudanese Security Forces Attack Anti-Coup Protesters

Sudanese security forces have attacked thousands of Sudanese protesters marching in protest against the military coup by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.

The protesters on Saturday, are demanding that soldiers go back to their barracks, calling for a transition to civilian rule.

The security forces attacked the protesters with tear gas canisters to break them up. Officers had earlier blocked bridges connecting the capital to suburbs, cut off phone lines and restricted the internet ahead of the planned protests.

The military government had been in control of the country since General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan seized power on October 25.

According to the independent Doctors’ Committee, at least 48 people have died in crackdowns during weeks of protests in the country.

Also during the repeated protests, it was alleged that the security forces raped women protesters.

Activists have condemned the sexual attacks during those protests, in which the United Nations said at least 13 women and girls were raped.
