Sudanese coup forces once again killed two protesters on Saturday. One was shot in the chest with sharp ammunition. The other was suffocated after inhaling gas fired by the coup forces. UNITAMS Head Volker Perthes condemned the excessive use of violence and he also called to remove the state of emergency.
KHARTOUM May 29: Sudanese coup forces once again killed two protesters on Saturday. The Resistance Committee in the Al-Kalakla suburb, south of Khartoum, organised a protest in their neighbourhood rejecting the military rule.
Many hundreds of people marched on Saturday in Khartoum, where coup forces violently dispersed the crowds and chased them in the streets, according to activists.
The Central Sudan Medical Committee commented on the deaths:
“A moment ago, the soul of a martyr rose. The effect of being shot live in the chest in the parades of the Kalakla area by the forces of the coup authority”.
“Urgent – another martyr has been confirmed today 28 May 2022. He was choked on the tear gas that the coup forces fired heavily while suppressing the parades in the Kalakla area. The coup forces intend to use deadly violence, and the coup general is mastering the filthy Badch forces using all kinds of weapons against peaceful rebels who prove day after day that peaceful is stronger than bullets”.
UNITAMS Head Volker Perthes condemned the excessive use of violence and called to remove the state of emergency. In a statement on Twitter, he said: “I am appalled by the violent death of two young protesters in Khartoum yesterday. One again: it is time for the violence to stop, time to end the state of emergency, time for a peaceful way out of the current crisis in Sudan”.
At least 98 people have been killed and more than 4,300 injured since the military coup in October last year, according to the medical group.
