Thousands demand justice for Khartoum protest dead

Thousands of people in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, have been marching to demand justice for those killed in anti-government protests two years ago.

Security forces closed the main roads leading to the army headquarters ahead of the demonstration.

Campaigners say at least 128 people were killed in June 2019 when armed men violently dispersed a protest camp outside the headquarters.

The crowd had been there for weeks, calling for civilian rule after the ousting of Sudan’s President, Omar al-Bashir.
