On Tuesday, the Student Movement organised a march heading from the universities of El Nilein and Sudan to the University of Khartoum in memory of the students killed during the protests.

The alliance said an army force and Rapid Support Forces troops intercepted the marches towards Khartoum university.

Participants in the march chanted slogans demanding punishment of the killers of the martyrs and the independent and transparent investigation.

Addressing the march, Ismail El Taj, a leading member of the Sudanese Professionals Association, stressed the independent and transparent investigation and access to retribution for the martyrs.

Meanwhile, university and school students organised a rally on Obeid Khatim Street demanding the civilian authority.
