Sudan: Protesters Renew Demands For Civilian Rule

Sudanese protesters marched towards the airport in the capital Khartoum. Coup forces fired rounds of tear gas to disperse the protesters. Sudan has been reeling from political unrest, a spiralling economic crisis and a spike in ethnic clashes in its far-flung regions.

KHARTOUM AUGUST 19: Sudanese protesters marched towards the airport in the centre of the capital Khartoum on Thursday before being blocked by tear gas and a heavy army deployment, a Reuters witness said.

Protesters were seen in the capital Khartoum carrying Sudanese flags and chanting: “No, no to military rule,” and “Civilian rule is the people’s choice”. Coup forces fired rounds of tear gas to disperse the protesters, according to AFP correspondents.

Last month, Burhan pledged in a televised address to step aside and make way for Sudanese factions to agree on a civilian government. Civilian leaders who were ousted in the coup dismissed his move as a “ruse”.
