KHARTOUM SEPTEMBER 14: At least 74 protesters were wounded during Marches of the Millions in Khartoum organised by the resistance committees on Tuesday. This morning the Central Sudan Medical Committee issued an early statement regarding the injuries during the recent demonstrations.
According to the doctors, the demonstrations in Khartoum claimed 74 victims. The injuries that the doctors report are otherwise: a child was run over by a car belonging to the coup forces, 4 head injuries by tear gas canisters, eye injuries, rubber bullets, and various injuries to the body as a result of direct shooting of A packages. More injuries were reported.
As for Khartoum, the demonstrations started from Bashdar and Abu Hamama, and headed toward the Republican Palace in central Khartoum. When they approached El Gasr Street, police forces fired tear gas canisters extensively to prevent them from entering the street. It all developed into a deadly game between the unarmed protesters and the heavily armed coup forces. Many protesters were detained.
Another tradition among the coup forces was also revived during the demonstrations – shaving heads. Coup forces assaulted youths in the city and forcibly shaved their heads. It is unknown under what section of the Sudanese law the coup forces are carrying out this action. Possession of a deadly weapon? Indecent behavior?
