‘Sudan police shoot at mourners’
Reuters news agency is reporting that police in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, have fired live ammunition at hundreds of people mourning the death of a man killed by the security forces during anti-government demonstrations.
It quotes a witness as saying the 60-year-old protester had died on Friday morning from a gunshot wound sustained on Thursday night.
Reuters says as many as 2,000 mourners gathered at the man’s house the Burri district of the capital.
It’s the same neighbourhood where a child and a doctor were shot dead during protests on Thursday.
