H6 sudan clashes security forces protesters

In Sudan, at least six protesters and a member of security forces were killed when security and paramilitary forces opened fire on crowds outside military headquarters in the capital Khartoum Monday. Dozens more were injured. Earlier in the day, the transitional military council said they reached an agreement with protest leaders on a transitional power structure. Demonstrators have been demanding a transfer from military to civilian rule. This is protester Rasha Ali.

Rasha Ali: “We will not accept being treated like we have been treated by the previous and current regimes, whether Bashir or others. We have been treated in ways that are unacceptable by anyone. This scenario will not be repeated.”

Also on Monday, deposed President Omar al-Bashir was charged in the killing of protesters during the popular uprising which led to his overthrow last month. One of the deaths being investigated is that of a doctor who was shot dead while assisting injured protesters.
