Tear gas fired also at second Sudan anti-coup protest

Sudanese security forces have fired tear gas at a second anti-coup rally in Khartoum following a call for civil disobedience against last month’s military takeover, according to a witness.

“Protesters gathered in Burri in east Khartoum, barricaded the streets, and set car tires ablaze, chanting against military rule,” says protester Mosab Abdalla. “Security forces later dispersed the protest by firing tear gas and began removing the barricades.”

Earlier, Sudanese security forces dispersed a protest by teachers in Khartoum using tear gas.
