A patient standing on a hospital balcony was killed by a stray bullet fired by security forces at protesters against military rule in Sudan on Sunday, Reuters reported, citing doctors.
A 51-year-old man was shot while trying to get fresh air amid heavy tear gas in the city of Bahri, across the Nile from Khartoum, the Central Committee for Sudanese Doctors, a group aligned with the protest movement, said
The protests against military rule have faced crackdowns that have drawn local and international condemnation.
In protests in Khartoum on Sunday, security forces fired tear gas and stun grenades, and water cannon sprayed red water at protesters, Reuters reports.
At least 82 people have died since the protests began. Military leaders have vowed to investigate the deaths.
