KHARTOUM (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 01st June, 2019) Sudanese military police opened fire on Saturday against protesters near the Armed Forces' headquarters in the capital of Khartoum, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

The police tried to dismantle the barricades erected by the demonstrators, which sparked clashes between the officers and the protesters.

As the military police started firing at the people, hundreds of the demonstrators fled to a nearby mosque to take shelter.

�A sit-in was organized in front of the Armed Forces' headquarters on April 6, following months of anti-government protests across Sudan.

Less than a week later, the Sudanese military toppled and arrested long-time President Omar Bashir and established the Transitional Military Council. But the rallies in the capital continued, as protesters demanded a transition of power to a civilian government.
