Sudan’s future remains contested after more than 100 are killed in attacks on protests

Sudan is reeling from the aftermath of a violent attack on a weeks-long protest sit-in outside the military headquarters in the northeast African country’s capital Khartoum, with casualty reports mounting.

Dozens were killed in the deadly ambush on the protest encampment by security forces on Monday, and yet the full extent is still unknown more than halfway into the week—especially because of reports there was unstable internet access in the days after and the crackdown spanned the country beyond the capital in other Sudanese cities.

Members of the Central Committee of Sudan Doctors reportedWednesday that 40 bodies were found thrown into the Nile River, increasing a death toll to at least 100 killed.
