A doctor and a child were killed on Thursday as protests continued to rock the Sudanese capital of Khartoum and cities across the troubled country, reports Reuters.
Demonstrators chanting “Freedom, peace, justice” gathered in central Khartoum and began their march but riot police quickly confronted them with tear gas, the witnesses told AFP.
Anti-government protests that erupted across Sudan on December 19, after the government raised the price of bread, have turned into daily nationwide demonstrations against Bashir’s three decades of rule.
Officials say at least 24 people have died in the protests, but human rights group have put the death toll higher.
Amnesty International said last week that more than 40 people had been killed and more than 1,000 arrested.
Human Rights Watch said the dead did include children and medical staff.
