Thousands in Sudan protest killing of students


Thousands of people have marched across cities in Sudan to condemn the killing of four students today, in what is being hailed as the "Sudanese revolution" today (August 1).

The country's ruling generals and the opposition said they would resume talks aimed at forming a new transitional government.

"This is the beginning of the Sudanese revolution. We are tired of being killed. Let us go out, by the millions to preserve the spirit of the martyred, the four who were killed for no reason," Abedalrhman Hussein, the filmer, told Newsflare.

Hussein and other demonstrators on Thursday were heeding a call for a "million-man march" to protest the killing of four school children at a rally earlier this week against growing bread and fuel shortages in El-Obeid, a city in central Sudan.

Many marching in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, carried photos of the four students as well as some of those killed in the months-long pro-democracy protests that resulted in the removal of President Omar al-Bashir in April.
