Sudanese protesters: Forces kill one outside Khartoum's sit

Protesters rest during a sit-in inside the Armed Forces Square in Khartoum Sudan Wednesday

The military officials said the Nile street area was being "cleared" by forces mainly from the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, led by Gen. Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo - better known as Hemedti - who serves as deputy head of the ruling military council.

The Sudan Doctors Committee says the shooting took place late Saturday on Nile Street and that at least 11 people were wounded. As a result, the security forces opened fire on protesters at the bridge nil al-Azraq.

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

The Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA), the leading force behind the current uprising, has advised the protestors "to abide by the borders of the sit-in, defined on April 6, and to keep away from bullets fired by military outlaws".

Jogdande said the bodies were above 5,000 metres and the possibility of a second avalanche would make accessing the site hard . He said the climbers were likely trekking heights above 6,000 metres when the avalanche struck after heavy snowfall.

The Sudanese Professionals Association said on Saturday it had reason to believe the military council was "planning and working to end the peaceful sit-in at the headquarters with excessive force and violence".

Meanwhile, supporters of the military council held a rival demonstration in the city, saying only the army can bring peace.

Tensions are mounting between the TMC and an alliance of protest and opposition groups who want a quick handover of power to civilians. Since then, protesters have remained camped out in front of Khartoum's army headquarters to pressure the generals to yield power.

The military rulers did not immediately comment on the latest violence, but on Thursday warned that incidents on Nile Street threatened "public security and safety".
