Sudan: reports of gunfire as army moves in on Khartoum protesters

Sudan: reports of gunfire as army moves in on Khartoum protesters

But thousands of protesters continued to camp outside the ministry, demanding that military rulers who replaced Bashir hand over power to civilians. Thousands of employees of government offices, banks, private sector firms and the docks of Port Sudan observed the strike on Tuesday, insisting that only civilian rule can lift Sudan out of its political crisis.

The Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors, a medical group linked to protesters, said at least five people were killed and several wounded in the Monday morning raid, which was still in progress.

Protesters flee along side streets away from a sit-in, after security forces tried to disperse them, in central Khartoum, Sudan in this still frame taken from June 3, 2019 social media video.

Gunfire has been heard in the capital and casualties are reported.

Rallies against the authoritarian rule of Omar al-Bashir led to his ousting in April, but demonstrators have remained to call on the generals to cede power to a transitional authority.

The TMC said it would not use force to disperse the protesters and has not issued a statement about Monday's protest.

The protesters are now in negotiations with the military on the makeup of an interim council.

Washington later slapped additional tariffs of up to 25% on $200 billion of Chinese goods, prompting Beijing to retaliate. On Sunday, Wei said the countries recognize that a conflict or war between them would have wide-reaching effects.

A Reuters witness saw troops wielding batons, including riot police and members of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, deploy in central Khartoum and close roads, apparently to try to block people from reaching the protest site.

Britain's ambassador to Khartoum, Irfan Siddiq, said he had heard "heavy gunfire" from his residence. In recent days, it has been the site of attacks, clashes and shootings.

"No excuse for any such attack".

Protesters had already set about building a brick barricade and had set tyres and tree trunks alight on Street 60 - one of the main streets in the capital.

The protesters are calling for "limited military representation" in a sovereign council that would lead the country as it transitions to civilian rule over three years.

The sit-in has lasted weeks as civilians and military officials argue over the makeup of a transitional government.
