Sudan: several shot dead in Monday’s protests

The Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors say seven people have been killed by security forces during Monday’s pro-democracy protests in the country.

According to the medics, “civilians were shot with live bullets” during Monday’s demonstrations.

Reuters news agency quotes a witness as saying several injured civilians could be seen bleeding heavily in streets after security forces fired tear gas to block protesters from approaching the presidential palace in Khartoum.

More than 70 people lost their lives during demonstrations in which the Sudanese population demanded the resignation of military leaders and the restoration of civilian rule.
