Sudanese pro-democracy protesters rally in Khartoum

Africa

Thousands of Sudanese pro-democracy protesters marched on the streets of the capital, Khartoum, on Sunday to demand a return to civilian rule.

Demonstrations have become regular events since the military coup on October 25.

The march took place hours before civilian Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok announced that he was resigning during a televised address. Hours before the planned protests the authorities cut access to mobile internet services and erected roadblocks between the capital and outlying areas.

Former head of state Omar al-Bashir was ousted in 2019 following mass protests.

Since the military coup, veteran general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan became the ‘de facto’ leader of the country.
