Thousands protest for civilian control in Sudan

(MENAFN) On Sunday, Sudan saw the start of new protests calling for the return of civilian government to the nation.

Anadolu Agency stated that thousands of protestors gathered in Khartoum, the capital, and blocked several routes with barricades and burning tires.

Roads leading to the Presidential Palace and the capital's headquarters of the Sudanese Military Command were blocked by security personnel. Additionally, reports of demonstrations came from the eastern cities of Kassala, Bahri, and Omdurman.

Banners calling for the return of civilian authority in Sudan were carried by demonstrators. On the other hand, the Resistance Committees, the organization at the forefront of the current wave of anti-military protests, and the previous governing Forces of Freedom and Change alliance organized Sunday's marches.

Since the military toppled Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok's transitional government in October of last year, a move that was denounced by political groups as a "military coup," Sudan has been in upheaval.
