The shooting took place in the metropolis of Khartoum, especially in its northern districts. The death toll has risen to 39 since the coup, with hundreds more injured, a pro-democracy union said. Police have denied the use of live ammunition, and state television has announced that an investigation into the incidents has begun.

A military coup in Sudan took place on October 25, when General Abdal Fattah Burhan overthrew the government, detained the country’s civilian leadership and declared a state of emergency in the country.

Through his actions, he provoked a sharp reaction from the West and street protests in his own country, whose participants demand the restoration of civilian rule and a return to democratic transformation in the country.

Protesters’ hopes that the army would retreat were dashed last week on Thursday when Burhan was appointed head of the new ruling Sovereign Council, the country’s collective head of state. Burhan thus de facto excluded the main civilian political bloc from the power – the Force for Freedom and Change (FFC).

Burhan’s move has provoked further criticism from the West and regional organizations, which have immediately condemned the military coup itself, the illegal detention of the prime minister, several ministers, FFC pro-democracy leaders and other civil society representatives.
