Khartoum demonstrations: 2 Sudanese protesters dead, 54 injured

Sudanese police said on Friday that two demonstrators were murdered and 54 security officers were hurt in a day's worth of demonstrations in the capital, Khartoum.

During the protests, sixty individuals were arrested, and legal action was taken against them, according to state media sources. The police criticised the demonstrators for perpetrating violence against the security personnel in a statement.

On Thursday, further protests were held in the capital city, calling for the authority to be turned over to a civilian government. Witnesses reported the demonstrators attempted to enter the presidential palace, but security personnel dispersed them with tear gas.

Prior to the scheduled protests, communications and internet services on mobile phones were blocked in Khartoum earlier in the day. Major routes in central Khartoum were closed, and military soldiers were stationed around the army's general command headquarters and the presidential palace.

Ahead of the rallies, they also announced the shutdown of bridges connecting the three major cities of Khartoum, Omdurman, and Bahri, while the Al-Halfaya and Suba bridges remained accessible to traffic. Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok announced his retirement on January 2nd, amid a wave of protests across the country in recent weeks.
