One of the three dead had taken a live bullet on his head by the putschist forces while protesting in Omdurman, the twin city of Sudan’s capital. The second was also killed while protesting in the Omdurman and was not identified. The bullet hit the second deceased to the pelvis. While the third was eliminated in North Khartoum following a live shot that hit his chest.

According to the medical staff, apart from these three killed protestors, around 300 have been severely injured by live rubber bullets, rounds and firing of tear gas.

The security forces have not been shared any immediate comment.

These deaths were a day after US State Secretary Antony Blinken appealed to the Sudanese Security Forces to commit to an independent investigation and stop using lethal forces against protestors.

As per the reports, witnesses have claimed that demonstrations have occurred in Port Sudan in the east, Wad Madani in the south and Atbara in the north. They further said that protesters beat drums and chanted revolutionary songs and slogans.

The rallies were the latest addition to the series of protests since military forces, led by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, grabbed power on October 25.
