Seven members of the Sudan military have been arrested and will be prosecuted in connection with the killing of two demonstrators in the capital, Khartoum, last week.
The head of the interim sovereign council running the country, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, ordered an investigation into Tuesday’s deaths that happened outside the army headquarters in Khartoum.
But many people in Sudan are angry that there has still not been any justice for a far bigger atrocity that happened almost two years ago.
Then as protesters called for a return to civilian rule following the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir, soldiers opened fire. At least 128 people died.
The men who fired the weapons were from the much feared Rapid Support Forces – headed by Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo who today is the deputy head of the military council.
