Sudanese security forces fire tear gas

Eyewitnesses reported that the Sudanese security forces fired tear gas, today, Saturday, to disperse protesters in the capital, Khartoum, and the city of Omdurman.
They added to “Reuters”, that the security forces chased the protesters in the side streets in Omdurman, where pro-democracy groups gathered to participate in protests across the country to condemn the measures taken by the army on 25 October.

Sudan..Most bridges in Khartoum will be closed on the eve of expected demonstrations
Today, Sudan is witnessing an unprecedented security alert ahead of the start of demonstrations called by the popular committees and coordination groups to protest the measures taken by the army chief, Lieutenant-General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, and the formation of the new Sovereign Council.
The Sudanese army closed all but three of the capital’s bridges, in order to control the flow of crowds to the Khartoum neighborhoods.

The Sudanese Professionals Association (the leader of the protest movement in the country) had called last week for demonstrations “to demand civilian rule and to reject the army’s actions.”

On Friday, it also called on the armed “Sudan Liberation Army” movement to organize demonstrations in rejection of Al-Burhan’s decisions.

On October 25, Al-Burhan imposed a state of emergency in Sudan and dissolved the Sovereignty Council and the Transitional Ministers, accusing the civilian component of the authority of “conspiring and inciting against the army.”

The measures announced by Al-Burhan drew widespread international criticism, with a call for the release of detained politicians and officials, and a return to the democratic path.
