Sudanese activists call more protests

Sudanese activists have called for more protests across the country on Tuesday to denounce the 21 November political deal that reinstated Abdalla Hamdok as prime minister, despite a meeting between Mr Hamdok and members of Resistance Committees on 28 November.

“If the creation of fictitious bodies could protect the authority, then [ousted president Omar] al-Bashir would still be in power,” Khartoum State Resistance Committees reportedly said in response to Prime Minister Hamdok’s meeting with alleged representatives of Resistance Committees, according to privately-owned Al-Sudani newspaper website.

On Monday Mr Hamdok reiterated that the “political atmosphere does not allow for the beating of protesters”.

In recent demonstrations held before his deal with the military, at least 42 people were killed after security forces fired live bullets at the protesters, according to the Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors.
