The Royal Care hospital in Khartoum was overflowing with injured people on Tuesday June 4th after Sudan security forces violently dispersed a sit in protest outside the country’s Defence Ministry on Monday

The number of people killed in the operation has risen significantly to 60, according to The Central Committee of Sudan Doctors (CCSD), a doctors group linked to the opposition. Death toll was initially estimated to be 35.

The association said more people had been killed since then throughout Khartoum and its twin city of Omdruman.
