Sudanese Forces Fire on Protesters Demanding End to Military Rule

HeadlineMay 27, 2022

In Sudan, security forces were deployed in the capital Khartoum Thursday as massive protests demanding an end to military rule continue. Thousands of people took to the streets and marched toward the presidential palace demanding a return to civilian rule following a coup by Sudan’s military in October. This is one of the protesters.

Shahinaz Gamal: “Today there are a lot of injuries. They are targeting children and women, who are especially hit in the head and eyes. A woman told me she was hit by a security vehicle firing tear gas.”
