KHARTOUM, Sudan — Thousands of Sudanese take to the streets today in the capital to protest against the killings of dozens in a crackdown since last year’s military coup, an AFP correspondent says.

The demonstrations, which largely take place in east Khartoum, are the latest since the October 25 military coup led by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.

Sudanese security forces have killed 72 people during the ongoing crackdown, according to a count by medics.
