Sudan: Death Toll from Anti-Protest Raid Mounts, as Transitional Gov’t Sets Timeline for Election

HeadlineJun 04, 2019

In Sudan, the death toll from Monday’s raid on a protest site climbed to at least 35, according to protesters. The United Nations called for an investigation into the killings and the use of “excessive force” by military and security forces. Some protest leaders are calling for “total civil disobedience” as they continue to oppose the military government which has assumed power following the overthrow of longtime authoritarian President Omar al-Bashir in April, after months of popular demonstrations.

Meanwhile, the Transitional Military Council has said it is canceling its negotiations with the opposition coalition, and says it will hold elections within nine months.
