Sudan protests: Demonstrators take to streets after military seizes power

CA, 27 Oct 2021
Protesters in parts of Sudan marched in opposition to the military's seizure of power on Oct. 27 in the northeastern city of Atbara and on Oct. 26 in Khartoum.

Sudanese men, women and even some children were seen demonstrating in the streets, clapping and chanting: "Down with the military regime," and "Free protesters, we will finish the journey."

Thousands of people have taken to the streets since Monday's takeover, which was led by armed forces chief Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan. Several protesters have been killed in clashes with security forces, though an exact figure is not known.

Burhan on defended the military's seizure of power on Tuesday, saying he had ousted the government to avoid a civil war.
