Sudanese coup forces killed one protester Saturday during renewed demonstrations. The victim, Muhammad Khalis Aldin Ali, 20 years old, died from “a bullet to the chest” in the capital’s twin city of Omdurman. The latest death brings the toll to 96 since the October 25 military coup.

KHARTOUM May 22: Sudanese coup forces killed one protester Saturday during renewed demonstrations against a military take over that derailed a transition to civilian rule last year, medics said.

The victim, who was identified as Muhammad Khalis Aldin Ali, 20 years old, died from “a bullet to the chest” in the capital’s twin city of Omdurman, the pro-democracy Central Committee of Sudan Doctors said in a statement.

The Central Sudan Medical Committee also reported that: “Omdurman city parades are now exposed to excessive repression with live bullets, cartridges, sound grenades and direct targeting of tear gas cans on the bodies of rebels, leading to the fall of a martyr and dozens of injuries that are now under lockdown, some of which are unstable”.

Medical volunteers and regular medical personnel have also been severely harassed by the coup forces.

About 100 people were injured during Thursday’s demonstrations, according to the doctors’ committee. At the same time two leading anti-coup figures from Sudan’s Communist Party were arrested. They were released Friday.

The latest death brings the toll to 96 from a crackdown on anti-coup protests which have taken place regularly since the October 25 military coup led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the committee said.
