Sudanese security forces shot at protesters against military rule
On December 25, 2021, Sudanese security forces shot and killed four pro-democracy protesters and wounded hundreds of others who, among tens of thousands of people, defied a security lockdown and telecommunications network shutdowns to demonstrate against military rule, AFP News reports. Security forces installed new CCTV cameras on major thoroughfares in advance of the protests, which demanded a transition to a civilian government. Activists have also condemned sexual attacks on women and girls during protests held earlier in December.
