PROTESTS CONTINUE IN SUDAN AFTER MILITARY TAKEOVER

308

After a night of protests, demonstrators remained on the streets in Sudan’s capital Khartoum, on Tuesday demanding the return of civilian rule, a day after the military seized power in a swift coup widely denounced by the international community.

On Monday, coup leader Abdel Fattah Burhan dissolved civilian rule, arrested political leaders and called a state of emergency.

At least seven people have been killed and over 140 wounded during anti-coup protests in the country.

The coup has drawn global condemnation as the United Nations Security Council is due to discuss the situation in a closed-door meeting on Tuesday.
