Gunfire Reported as Sudanese Forces Crack Down on Protest

Social media users reported the use of live ammunition by Sudanese forces against anti-government demonstrators in Khartoum North on January 13, while Reuters said tear gas was used to disperse crowds in the city.

This footage shows crowds marching through what was described as Khartoum North.

Later, loud bangs, said to be gunfire, are heard as the camera holder and others flee.

Protests were also held in other areas of the country including, for the first time, Nyala, the main city in Darfur, according to Reuters.

Hundreds have participated in Sudan’s ongoing protests, according to Reuters.

The demonstrations, sparked by rising prices and calls for President Omar al-Bashir to resign, began in December and have led to crackdowns, with security forces using tear gas and live ammunition against demonstrators.

Most recently, three protesters were killed in anti-government demonstrations in Omdurman on January 9, the Sudan News Agency reported.

Officials estimated that 24 people had been killed in the protests since December 27; however, an Amnesty International report put the number of fatalities at 37.

President Omar al-Bashir 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.
