KHARTOUM, Sudan — Sudanese security forces have killed 10 people and wounded dozens today in a crackdown on anti-coup protests, medics say, including seven in northern Khartoum where hundreds of demonstrators are still marching.

Most of the casualties were shot “in the head, neck or torso,” says the pro-democracy union of doctors, while the Sudanese Professionals Association, which spearheaded 2019 protests, accuses the police of “premeditated killings.”
