Protests erupted in Sudan on Sunday, as protesters blocked the main border road with Egypt.

This happened as protesters in the Northern State blocked the Sheryan al-Shimal Road between Sudan and Egypt.

According to Anadolu Agency, the protest is a result of what the Sudanese call the Egyptian government's support for the military takeover in Sudan.

According to the resistance committee that led the protest, "We will fully block the road between the two countries and stop Sudanese exports to Egypt."

"The roads will be shut from both River Nile State and the Northern State, including the road linking Port Sudan with Khartoum to the south and with Egypt in the north."

In the capital Khartoum, thousands of protesters chanted slogans against the military as they called for the accountability of protesters killed by security forces.

Since the military took over Sudan in October 2021, more than 70 people have been killed by the security forces, this was according to the Doctors association in the country.
