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.
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.
