Sudan: Hundreds rally against military coup in Khartoum in new round of demonstrations

Hundreds of protesters demonstrated in Khartoum on Thursday against last year’s military coup that halted the country’s democratic transition and demanded a civilian government.

Footage shows the latest in a series of demonstrations in the Sudanese capital. Protesters marched with flags and banners, calling for justice for scores of people killed during the protests crackdown.

The protest marks the day of the largest crowds in northern Khartoum, November 17, 2021. Back then around 15 people were killed on one day, making it the deadliest single-day crackdown on anti-coup demonstrations.

On October 25, 2021, the army chief, Lieutenant-General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, imposed measures that ended all the pledges he had taken two years earlier to share power with civilians and declared a state of emergency.
