Sudan protester killed in Darfur sit-in

One protester has been killed and several others have been injured in Sudan’s Darfur region – after security forces opened fire on a sit-in protest in the town of Nyala yesterday.

The sit-in was part of a wave of demonstrations across the country since last month’s coup – demanding an immediate handover to civilian rule. Talks between the military authorities and protest leaders have so far failed to reach an agreement – from Sudan, Yousra Elbagir reports.
