Uprising against the military regime: Thousands of demonstrators in Sudan

In Sudan, security forces used tear gas against several thousand demonstrators on Thursday. The bridge connections to the capital Khartoum were closed and the telephone connections were cut for the first time since the protests against the military coup on October 25th. Internet connections were also blocked. Police and military patrolled all over Khartoum. Protests have also been reported from other cities.

The demonstrators in Khartoum came within a few hundred meters of the presidential palace, the headquarters of military chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan. Then the demonstrators were pushed back with tear gas by soldiers, police and para-military militias.
