Sudanese police use teargas to disperse protesters
As the demonstrations in Sudan continue, the Sudanese police use teargas to disperse demonstrators and put up traffic obstacles to prevent them from advancing.
The Sudanese police disperse protesters in the capital Khartoum using tear gas, according to an AFP correspondent. The protesters demonstrated against coup leader General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan.
Furthermore, security officials have put up traffic obstacles on Nile river crossings that connect Khartoum to its suburbs in an effort to dissuade demonstrators who had promised to march in huge numbers.
Since the start of the unrest in Sudan, there have been almost weekly protests and security force crackdowns that have resulted in at least 114 deaths, according to medics.
Earlier, on July 6, Sudan's coup leader Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan laid off his last civilian members of the Sudanese Sovereign Council after he announced that the council will dissolve to make way for a technocrat government.
Protesters took to the streets again in protest of the pledge. In Khartoum, hundreds of women protesters chanted, "The blood of the martyrs did not flow in vain," in a reference to protesters who were killed in the violence. The protesters, furthermore, demanded that the soldiers return to the barracks.
