Sudanese security forces have killed a 27-year-old protester during anti-coup demonstrations in the capital Khartoum, bringing to 79 the number of people killed in the crackdown since October. Al Jazeera reports that, defying a ban on protests, thousands of demonstrators marched in the streets of Khartoum and other cities on Sunday denouncing the October military takeover and calling for a fully civilian government to lead the country’s now-stalled transition to democracy. Protesters were seen carrying Sudanese flags and other flags with photos of protesters reportedly slain by security forces printed on them.
