Two Sudanese protesters were killed Saturday in the nation's capital, Khartoum, medical sources told Anadolu Agency.

The doctors accused security organs of using live riots against protesters in different parts of the capital, including in the Alkalalak neighborhood.

The Central Committee of the Sudanese Doctors (CCSD) said authorities used disproportional violence against protesters, including live munitions.
