- — Reuters

A Sudanese protester was fatally shot Tuesday during a demonstrat­ion against military rule, the Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors said.

Sudanese police said the shooting was an individual action that went against orders and that legal procedures had been immediatel­y taken against the police officer involved.

The protester, who was killed in the Sharg al-nil area near Sudan’s capital, became the 125th protester killed in weekly protests set off by a coup in October 2021.

The protests come as military leaders who took over in the coup are negotiatin­g a deal with civilian political parties previously in power to restore a civilian government.
