Tear gas, stun grenades fired as Sudan protests enter 10th day
Sudanese police have fired tear gas and stun grenades on hundreds of protesters in several cities, including the capital Khartoum, as opposition groups urged for more anti-government protests.
The protests, which entered their 10th day on Friday, were staged after the weekly prayers in some areas of Khartoum, its twin city Omdurman, Port Sudan, Atbara and Madani, witnesses said.
Hundreds of worshippers emerged from the mosque in Khartoum's twin city of Omdurman on the west bank of the Nile to protest, but anti-riot police fired tear gas to disperse the crowd.
Worshippers also marched in the eastern city of Atbara, where the deadly protests against a rise in the prices of bread and fuel first began on December 19.
