Every week, pro-democracy demonstrators have taken to the streets to challenge the al-Burhans authority. Many of those taking to the streets are young women. There are reports coup forces have been targeting them with beatings, sexual assault, and rape.

It’s been five months since Sudan’s military staged a coup ending a power-sharing agreement with civilian leaders. Every week since then, pro-democracy demonstrators have taken to the streets to challenge the junta’s authority. More than 80 people have been killed as security forces crackdown on protests.

Many of those taking to the streets are young women. But there are increasing reports coup forces have been targeting them with beatings, sexual assault, and rape to silence them.

BBC Africa correspondent, Catherine Byaruhanga has been investigating these allegations in Khartoum.
