At Least 10 Killed in Sudanese Anti-Gov’t Protests

HeadlineJul 01, 2019

In Sudan, at least 10 people were killed after tens of thousands took to the streets Sunday, the first mass demonstration since the deadly crackdown on a peaceful protest camp by security forces in early June, which killed at least 128 people.

Zakia Yis: “Since the 29th of Ramadan, I have felt my blood boiling in my veins. So I had to come out tonight. I had to march. I had to march for everyone killed. I had to march for the martyrs that died, march for the girls that were raped. I had to march to achieve something, anything.”

Amid an internet and press blackout, reports emerged of police deploying tear gas, live ammunition and stun grenades into crowds. Demonstrators are continuing to demand a civilian-led government after a months-long popular uprising led to the military overthrow of longstanding authoritarian President Omar al-Bashir in April.
