"Two demonstrators were killed in the city of Omdurman by the militias of the putschist military council," the independent Central Doctors Committee said in a Facebook post.
The deaths came as thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in Khartoum on Saturday to protest this week’s military takeover in Sudan.
Protesters marched in the Al-Kalakla neighborhood in the southern part of Khartoum and in Bahri, the northern twin city of the capital, according to an Anadolu Agency reporter.
Demonstrators chanted anti-military slogans and waved anti-coup banners, amid calls for the resignation of the head of the ruling military council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, eyewitnesses said.
Saturday’s protests were called by the Sudanese Professional Association (SPA), an activist coalition, to demand the restoration of the transitional civilian government in Sudan.
