At least 30 die as Sudan troops clear protest camp | ITV News


Sudanese security forces have attacked a protest camp in the capital Khartoum, killing at least 30 people, witnesses and protest leaders said.

In videos posted online amid the early-morning assault, civilians were seen running through streets lined with sit-in tents, heads down, as the sound of gunfire filled the air. Smoke rose from the area.

“Wounded people are lying on the ground the reception area as there are not enough beds,” said Azza al-Kamel, a doctor at the Royal Care hospital near the sprawling sit-in area outside the military headquarters in the capital.

The Sudan Doctors’ Committee said at least 30 people were killed and more than 200 wounded, many by gunfire.
