Another deadly day, the 13 January anti-coup protests

14 January 2022

Yesterday, another massive countrywide protest against the 25 October military coup took place. Military forces took even harsher measures to suppress the civilian protestors, including live bullets and heavy weapons.

Two protesters were killed during the demonstrations – one of these protestors was shot dead in the abdomen in Bahri, Khartoum North, according to the Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors. The police said in a statement that an officer was also killed on 13 January during the demonstrations. At least 64 people have died in the protests since the coup took place in late October.

Despite the challenges, demonstrators managed to reach the presidential palace in central Khartoum for several hours.
