The pro-democracy “Central Committee of Sudanese Physicians” announced yesterday that a 17-year-old boy had been shot dead by security forces as they were disbanding a protest against a military coup in Omdurman. The leader, Lieutenant-General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, is against his citizens in power.
According to the same source, the death toll in the suppression of anti-coup protests in this large East African country has risen to 89 in almost five months.
The group said in a statement: “Not long ago, But Nubawi Tiyagi Babikar al-Rashid, a 17-year-old man from Butt Nubawi in Omdurman, died after being shot at close range by a live bullet fired by coup officials.”
Eyewitnesses say security forces fired tear gas to disperse protesters demanding the return of civilian rule to the country during protests in Khartoum and its suburbs yesterday.
The United States announced yesterday that it was imposing sanctions on a special unit of Sudanese police accused of committing “grave human rights abuses” during the crackdown on protests.
Washington has confirmed that the Federal Reserve was a military police force that was at the forefront of violent repression of a protest movement in Khartoum in January.
Sudan has seen continued unrest and protests since al-Burhan ousted his civilian allies in the military coup he launched in October, which has drawn widespread international condemnation.
Following the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir in April 2019, following a popular uprising against his rule, the military coup stalled the process of transition between the military and civilians, which ended in a power-sharing deal between the two parties.
