Security forces fired tear gas to disperse anti-coup protests
Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of the Sudanese capital Khartoum and other cities, continuing relentless anti-coup protests that have rocked the country since a military coup three months ago. Security forces fired tear gas to disperse protesters in several locations in the capital Monday. Those include the area around the fortified presidential palace, which has seen clashes in previous rounds of protests since the Oct. 25 coup. The military takeover has upended Sudan's transition to democratic rule. The African nation has been on a fragile path to democracy since a popular uprising forced the military to remove former autocratic President Omar al-Bashir in 2019.
