Sudan: Security Forces Fire on Anti-Government Protesters

HeadlineJan 18, 2019

In Sudan, security forces opened fire today on a crowd of mourners outside the home of a man who died after he was shot by authorities during an earlier protest in the capital, Khartoum. This followed the killing of two other protesters Thursday elsewhere in Khartoum—a doctor and a 16-year-old, who were both shot in the head by government forces. Protests erupted across Sudan a month ago calling for the overthrow of the ruling National Congress Party and an end to the military regime of President Omar Hassan al-Bashir.
