Sudanese security forces killed a protester during the latest mass demonstrations against last year’s military coup, medics said.
One protester died after “taking a bullet to the chest” during rallies in the capital Khartoum, the pro-democracy Central Committee of Sudan Doctors said. Another was killed after suffering “suffocation by tear gas”, the committee said.
The latest deaths bring to 98 the toll from a crackdown on anti-coup protests, which have taken place regularly since the October 25 military putsch led by army chief Abdel Fattah al Burhan, the committee said.
Thousands took to the streets in several parts of Khartoum.
