Thousands of Sudanese were attacked with tear gas as they took to the streets of the country’s capital, Khartoum, on Monday to protest against the October military coup.
Footage circulating online showed protesters marching in different locations in Khartoum and the city of Omdurman. Security forces attacked them, firing tear gas to disperse their marching near the presidential palace in Khartoum.
It is worthy to note that in the past protests in the country, security forces had made use of violence which included attacking with live ammunition. It was cited by the Sudan Doctors Committee that at least, 44 protesters have been killed and hundreds wounded since the coup started.
The Sudanese military seized power on October 25th as they dissolved the government and arrested many of the sitting politicians.
