According to a report by CNN, at least nine people have been injured at a pro-democracy sit-in in the Sudanese capital Khartoum, as violence continued in the country in the wake of the removal of President Omar al-Bashir. Eyewitnesses reportedly claim that Sudanese soldiers wearing Rapid Security Forces uniforms stormed barricades at the site of the demonstrations outside army headquarters on Wednesday. The opposition Central Committee of Sudan Doctors said in a Facebook post that 14 people were wounded, including eight who suffered gunshot wounds. CNN reports that the number of demonstrators at the site has swelled in recent days, becoming a point of contention for security forces as the location is just over half a kilometer from the presidential palace.
