Crowds March Through Khartoum Streets to Protest Price Increases

Protesters chanting “Peaceful!

Peaceful!” marched down al-Hurriya Ave in Khartoum, Sudan, on December 20 in protest of increases in food and fuel prices, Al Jazeera reported.

Several deaths have been reported as demonstrators clashed with police in various Sudanese cities, including Gadarif, according to Al Jazeera.

Authorities declared a state of emergency in the states of al-Qadarif and Atbara, Reuters reported.

News reports said some protesters called for the overthrow of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir who has been in power since 1989.

A constitutional amendment proposed this month would allow him to retain his position past the end of his term in 2020.
