The SCDC said in a statement that the authorities fired live ammunition and tear gas at a crowd in Omdurman, about 25 kilometers (16 miles) northwest of the capital. It added that many people were injured and admitted to hospital.

In the video shared by the militant group, groups of demonstrators can be seen running through the white tear gas smoke and dispersed from the alleged gunfire.

The National Center for Disease Control and Prevention called on “all medical personnel and experts” to provide support for the seriously injured, and called on “militias” to obstruct the movement of ambulances and delay the ability of the medical team to reach the wounded.

The newly released Sudanese prime minister defended the agreement with the military, saying he did so to

CNN has contacted the authorities for comments.

Thursday’s protests were the 11th day of large-scale demonstrations against military rule since the October 25 coup d’état. According to SCDC, at least 52 people have been killed by security forces since then.

The U.S. Embassy in Khartoum reiterated its support for “peaceful expression of democratic aspirations, and respect and protection of individuals who exercise freedom of speech” in a tweet on Wednesday night.

“We call for extreme caution when using force and urge the authorities not to use arbitrary detention,” it said.

The protesters condemned the military coup that took place in Khartoum, Sudan on October 25.

According to multiple media reports, the demonstrations on Thursday are underway due to the Sudanese security forces trying to censor the reports of some broadcasters.

Al-Arabiya said in a series of tweets that authorities raided the offices of Saudi broadcasting company al-Arabiya and its sister media al-Hadath on Thursday, confiscated equipment and attacked staff in Khartoum.

“Sudan security forces raided al-Arabiya and al-Hadath’s offices and confiscated (d) equipment,” al-Arabiya said.

“Due to the attack by the Sudanese security forces, the staff of al-Arabiya and al-Hadath were injured,” another al-Arabiya tweet said. “The Sudanese security forces attacked and assaulted journalists from al-Arabiya, Lina Yacoub and Nizar Biqdawi, as well as photographers and filmmakers.”

Earlier in the day, a Qatar TV station stated that its reporters could not report on the protests.

In the live TV broadcast on Thursday, Asharq news reporter Sally Osman apologized to the audience, saying that she could not continue the live broadcast because the Sudanese authorities prevented her from doing so.

“… Please forgive me, I cannot continue to report on what the authorities just prevented me from continuing, please forgive me,” Osman said in the air.

A few hours later, Asharq News stated that the staff had been detained by security forces and posted a picture of Othman in the news.

The U.S. Embassy in Khartoum condemned the violence on Thursday and added: “We also regret the violent attacks on the media and journalists by the Sudanese security services and urge the authorities to protect press freedom.”

Tremendous stress

Since the coup, Internet services have been severely disrupted, and telephone coverage has remained incomplete. Although daily life almost stagnated at the time of the coup, shops, roads and some banks have since reopened.

The coup took place after months of tension in the country. Since Bashir was deposed, military and civilian groups have shared power in the country. Since 2019, Sudan has been ruled by an unstable alliance between the two countries.

When the military effectively controlled and disbanded the power-sharing sovereign committee and the transitional government and temporarily detained Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok, everything changed.

The country’s military chief, General Abdul Fatah Burhan, resumed his duties in Hamdok last month as part of an agreement reached between the military and civilian leaders.

According to the agreement reached between Hamdok and Al Burhan, Hamdok once again became the leader of the transitional government, which was first established after strongman President Omar al-Bashir was deposed in 2019.

The Council of Ministers, which was disbanded on October 25, will resume, and the civilian and military leadership will share power. The constitution will be revised to outline the partnership between the Chinese personnel of the Transitional Government and the military.

But according to Mudawi Ibrahim, a prominent official of the National Forces Initiative (NFI), which helped mediate negotiations, the agreement also includes reorganizations that have not been specified but encountered resistance in Sudan.
