Politics Thousands protest in Sudan against post-coup political deal
13-Year-Old Girl Among Latest Deaths Reported From Protests Against Sudan Military Coup
The latest deaths include Remaaz Hatim al-atta and Omar Adam, bringing the death toll from Saturday's protests to 7. At least 23 protestors have died overall.Monday, a doctors union said two more Sudanese protestors died in the hospital from gunshot wounds during protests over the weekend. The Sudan Doctors committee said the two new deaths were Remaaz Hatim al-atta, who was shot in the head in front of her family's home in Khartoum, and Omar Adam, who was shot in the neck during protests in the same city. They were shot on October 25 and pronounced dead in the past 24 hours, the committee said.
Tens of thousands demonstrated on Thursday in Sudan to push back against a post-coup political deal signed earlier this week between its deposed prime minister and the country's military.
In a deal signed on Sunday, Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, who was deposed in a coup last month, would be reinstated as part of a power-sharing deal with the Sudanese military, the Associated Press
Until new elections take place, Hamdok would be leading a technocratic Cabinet subject to military oversight. The Sudanese prime minister, however, contends that he will be able to choose his own Cabinet, according to the AP.

In the capital Khartum, security forces shot at least five people.

Protesters took to the streets in the capital of Khartoum as well as other places including West Kordofan and North Darfur to demonstrate against the deal.
Activists and pro-democracy groups are seeking to have a more fully civil government, and while reinstating Hamdok was seen as a concession by the military, they see the political move as insufficient, according to the AP.
The demonstrations come as Sudan grapples with unrelated tribal violence as well as violent suppression of protests in the country.
Last week in West Darfur, fighting between non-Arab and Arab tribes, not related to the political protests, resulted in the deaths of 17 people, according to the Sudanese Doctors Committee, the AP noted.
Sudanese call for anti-coup protests as death toll rises to 40
Sudanese anti-coup activists called for mass protests on Sunday, as medics said the number of people killed since last month's military takeover had risen to at least 40. On Saturday, pro-democracy activists made online calls for mass anti-coup protests with a "million-strong march on November 21".Both the United States and African Union have condemned the deadly crackdown on protesters and called on Sudan's leaders to refrain from the "excessive use of force.
Meanwhile, activists claim that over 40 people have died so far due to security forces cracking down on demonstrations in the country.
