2 killed as thousands protest military takeover in Sudan

"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.
