Sudanese protesters blocked main roads in the capital Khartoum on Tuesday, amid rallies to demand full civilian rule.

Demonstrators burned tires and erected barricades in main roads in the cities of Bahri and Omdurman in protest of security crackdown on protests, according to an Anadolu Agency reporter at the scene.

Three protesters were killed on Monday and dozens injured during protests demanding full civilian rule in Sudan, according to local medics.
Meanwhile, the US Embassy in Khartoum warned its nationals to avoid crowds and demonstrations.

“Security forces may close bridges. Unannounced protests and acts of civil disobedience may continue to take place in the coming weeks,” the embassy said in a statement.

There was no comment from the Sudanese authorities on the report.

Sudan has been in turmoil since Oct. 25, 2021, when the military dismissed Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok’s transitional government and declared a state of emergency.

Prior to the military takeover, Sudan was governed by a sovereign council of military and civilian officials tasked with overseeing the transition period until elections in 2023.

Hamdok was reinstated on Nov. 21 following an agreement, but protesters denounced the deal, insisting on the removal of any military influence over the transitional governing coalition. He resigned on Jan. 2, citing a political deadlock.
