Four Killed as Sudanese Soldiers Fire on Peaceful Pro-Democracy Activists

HeadlineAug 02, 2019

In Sudan, soldiers opened fire with live bullets on a crowd of peaceful protesters Thursday, killing four people in the latest bloody assault on pro-democracy activists. The attack came as thousands of demonstrators heeded the call for a “million man march” to protest previous police killings, including a massacre of up to 130 people in June and the killing of four schoolchildren earlier this week. The latest killings came as opposition leaders met with Sudan’s military leaders for talks aimed at finalizing a power-sharing deal that would see a civilian government elected in 2022.
