Early on Monday morning, Sudanese security forces fired tear gas at the thousands of protesters who had massed outside the army headquarters for a second night demanding that President Omar al-Bashir resign.

Sudanese President, Omar Al-Bashir, held on Sunday an emergency meeting led by the army to discuss the latest political developments in the country.

Eyewitnesses told DPA that the Sudanese army opened the Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the General Command area to shelter the demonstrators and protect them from the police and security forces.

The Sudan Doctors Committee - which is a member of the Sudanese Professionals Association, the umbrella group which is spearheading the demonstrations - said another man died elsewhere in Khartoum after being beaten and tortured by security forces.

In Khartoum, the rally saw anti-government protesters reaching the army headquarters for the first time since the demonstrations erupted.

They said that riot police and secret service personnel charged the demonstrators with pickup trucks while firing tear gas, trying to disperse a crowd estimated at around 3,000 men and women.

Digeir said the protest organisers had also formed a council to initiate talks with security forces and the global community aimed at agreeing a political transition that gives power to a "transitional government that represents the wish of the revolution".

"We call on all people around Khartoum to gather there to protect our people on the ground".

Sudan's military, which previously overthrew President Jaafar Nimeiri following an uprising that began on April 6 1985, has yet to officially respond to demands to back the protesters.

The European Union said an "unprecedented" number of people had come out calling for change since Saturday.

"Their trust must be won through concrete action by the government".

Analysts said the recent intensification of the protests signalled that Sudan was heading towards an imminent "crunch" point. Protests began initially in December 2018 after the governments hike in bread prices, however it has since evolved into nationwide unrest against Bashir's rule.

Demonstrators accuse Bashir, who is wanted by global prosecutors for alleged war crimes in the westerly Darfur region, of presiding over years of repression and promoting policies that devastated the economy.

Aside from the killings, activists, Opposition leaders and journalists have also been jailed by the National Intelligence and Security Service which is very feared in the country.
