Witnesses told Radio Dabanga that the doctors carried banners during the protest in front of Rabak Hospital, condemning the killing of Dr Babikir Abdelhamid, breaking into hospitals and killing the peaceful demonstrators.

They explained that the security services dispersed the protest using tear gas and excessive violence as doctors announced a comprehensive strike from work in the hospital.

Sennar

On Wednesday, dozens of youths people in El Mazmoum in Sennar state, held a protest in the market, in solidarity with the demonstrations organised in different cities of Sudan.
