The death toll of the protests rises

Sudan’s Central Medical Committee said Friday that the death toll from police crackdowns on Thursday’s protests against the military government in the country had risen to five.

The committee added that the fifth person killed was hit in the chest by a tear gas canister fired by security forces during Thursday’s protests.

The protests are the eleventh round of mass demonstrations since the 25 October coup which saw Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok ousted before being reinstated.

The Sudan Medical Committee said the total number of people killed since the security forces started their campaign in October has now risen to 53.

Protesters are demanding that the army not play a role in the government during a transition period that ends with free elections.

The police had said in a statement on Friday that four people were killed in Omdurman and 297 protesters and 49 members of the police force were injured in national demonstrations against the military government on Thursday, attended by tens of thousands.
