Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has resigned amid political deadlock following a military coup that derailed the country’s fragile transition to democracy, saying in a televised speech late on Sunday that a roundtable discussion is needed to reach a new deal. Al Jazeera reports that his resignation came after Sudanese security forces on Sunday violently dispersed pro-democracy protesters killing at least two people. The deaths bring the total number of protesters killed since the October 25 coup to at least 56.
