Four killed on first day of Sudan ‘civil disobedience’ campaign


The Central Committee for Sudanese Doctors says four people were killed in Sudan on Sunday on the first day of a “civil disobedience” campaign by protesters.

The Central Committee disclosed that two people were shot dead in the capital Khartoum and its twin city of Omdurman just across the Nile River, adding that two others died in a hospital in Omdurman after being stabbed.

The committee blamed the ruling military council and paramilitary forces for the four deaths.

It said a total of 118 people have been killed since a crackdown was launched on June 3 to disperse a sit-in protest outside the military headquarters in the Sudanese capital.
