Sudan Crisis: Security Forces ‘Move Against Protesters’
Gunfire has been heard, and medical sources saying at least eight people were killed.
Sudan has been governed by a Transitional Military Council (TMC) since President Omar al-Bashir was overthrown in a coup in April.
The council later denied using force to break up the main protest site.
“Sudanese forces did not disperse the sit-in outside the army headquarters by force, but rather targeted a nearby area which has become a threat to the safety of citizens,” TMC spokesman Lt Gen Shams al-Din Kabbashi told UAE-based Sky News Arabia TV channel.
