The Sudanese security forces cracked down on hundreds of thousands of pro-democracy demonstrators who took to the streets across the country on Nov. 13 to reject the army’s tightening grip on power.

According to the Sudan doctors union, security forces used live ammunition and tear gas to disperse protesters and at least five protesters were killed, four from gunshot wounds and one from inhaling tear gas.
