At least 27 protesters killed as Sudanese forces attack sit-in

Activists in Sudan say at least 27 people have been killed after security forces launched an assault on a camp at the centre of the country’s protest movement in Khartoum, sending activists running for cover to escape the gunfire.

Other sit-in protests around the country were also attacked in what appeared to be a co-ordinated push to crush the opposition movement, which has been calling on Sudan’s military rulers to hand over power to civilian rule.
