Sudan: 4th day of anti-coup protests in Khartoum
Protests continue against the military coup in Sudan.
Protests on the streets of Khartoum are on their fourth consecutive day on Sunday, as protestors took to the streets again to demand civil rule and an end to the military coup executed by the army last year.
The Sudanese capital saw its bloodiest day of protests since the beginning of the year two days, as nine protestors were killed.
The coup, which took place more than eight months ago, plunged the country into a cycle of violence and further deepened the country's economic crisis.
Protestors in Khartoum chanted for vengeance against the military for killing protestors, with some carrying pictures of those who fell by the military's fire.
Sudan has been in turmoil since October 25, 2021, after Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok's transitional government was dismissed and a state of emergency was declared in the country.
Before the takeover by the military forces, Sudan was ruled by a sovereign council of the military, and civilian officials were tasked with overseeing the transition period until elections in 2023.
On Oct. 25, Army General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan spearheaded a military coup that halted a collaboration between the army and civilian parties that was supposed to lead to democratic elections, igniting months of protests and international condemnation.
