The Sudanese government on Tuesday confirmed that a protester was killed in Omdurman city during mass demonstrations in the capital Khartoum and other cities.
“Despite their peaceful nature, the demonstrations registered falling of a new martyr in Omdurman in addition to injuries in the capital and states,” Faisal Mohamed Saleh, Sudan’s information minister and government spokesman, said in a statement.
The judicial bodies will carry out a transparent investigation to determine the responsibilities and punish the perpetrators of these unacceptable violations, he added.
No details were disclosed on the victim.
Tens of thousands of Sudanese protesters on Tuesday demonstrated in Khartoum and other cities, demanding for political reforms and democratic transformation.
Since August 2019, a military and civilian coalition has been in power in Sudan for a transitional period of 39 months, after a popular revolution that ousted former President Omar al-Bashir in April last year.
