Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Sudan earlier this week to call for the restoration of civil rule. However, the peaceful protest took a different dimension when security forces caved in on them, causing pandemonium.

The Central Committee of Sudan Doctors revealed in a statement on Tuesday, that not less than 73 protesters were injured in the anti-coup demonstrations across Sudan.

It was also reported that the Sudanese security forces used all kinds of brutal measures to keep the protesters in check, such as live ammunition and stun grenades fired into the crowds as they spread across the country.

The security forces also tear-gassed protesters, suffocating them, while others were badly wounded by the tear gas cannisters. They also went as far as even mowing down some of the pro-democracy protesters with the security vehicles.
Some of the victims have had their arms amputated due to severe injuries sustained during the brutality meted out on them.

Sudanese protesters have continued to march in their quest for civil rule.

Not less than 38 were injured in processions in the capital Khartoum and 25 were injured in Sudan’s second largest city, Omdurman.

The pro-democracy protests were staged to call for civilian rule, five months after Sudan’s military general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan led a coup against former Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok’s government.

Records have it that since the October Coup began, not less than 92 protesters have been killed, as security forces continue to use “deadly violence against the peaceful revolutionaries”, according to the medical committee, who stated that their aim is to “expose the military council to the world” and work with community bodies to provide medical care to protesters.
