29 dead in 3 days of Sudan riots: Medics
KHARTOUM (AFP) - At least 29 people have been killed in three days of rioting in Sudan sparked by a government decision to scrap subsidies on fuel, medical officials said on Thursday.
"We have received the bodies of 21 people" since the protests began on Monday, a hospital source in Khartoum's twin city Omdurman told AFP, adding that all were "civilians".
Another eight people were killed in other regions, witnesses and families said.
Activists have called for fresh protests on Thursday in Khartoum, where anti-riot forces have been deployed since early morning at major road intersections, an AFP correspondent said.
