At least 10 people were shot dead and many wounded in a crackdown on protests against Sudan’s military coup on Wednesday, according to a leading medical group.
Security forces fired live ammunition during demonstrations in several areas around greater Khartoum, the Central Committee of Sudan Doctors said on its Facebook page. Many people with critical injuries are being treated in the city’s hospitals, it said.
The military has increased its grip on power in recent days, in part by making alliances with key rebel groups that once aligned with ousted civilian politicians. They include a faction of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North.
The U.S., the U.K., the African Union and the European Union have all denounced the coup and urged moves to revive the country’s transition to civilian rule. On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Kenya, where he repeated that call.
