Published October 26th, 2021 - 10:32 GMT

Several protesters were killed and dozens were injured on Monday as the Sudanese army has used force to disperse crowds demonstrating in the streets against the military coup in Khartoum, sources revealed.

Sudanese main opposition coalitions are also calling for civil disobedience against the military coup that took place on Monday, where unknown armed men have detained members of the Sudanese cabinet and the Sovereign Council, which is a ruling body that had shared power between the military and civilians.

Military forces arrested a number of political leaders, including Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok and several people of the civilian leadership; namely, Industry Minister Ibrahim Al-Sheikh, Information Minister Hamza Baloul, and media adviser to the prime minister, Faisal Mohammed Saleh.
