Protesters Face Tear Gas in Demonstrations in Khartoum
Police deployed tear gas and fired live ammunition to disperse protests in Khartoum on December 31, Al Jazeera reported.
Officials estimated that 19 people had been killed in the protests by December 27.
Amnesty reported the figure as nearly double, at 37.
Hundreds more people have been reported injured during the protests, sparked by shortages of food and fuel and rising prices.
Video streamed to Facebook on December 31 shows protesters chanting before police launched tear gas into the crowd.
Heavy coughing is audible as the demonstrators ran from the scene.
Protesters have 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.
