Sudan-(Caalami-News)-Three protesters have been killed during an anti-government demonstration inSudaneven as thousands chanted support for PresidentOmar al-Bashirat a rival rally in the capital, Khartoum.





 

Sudan's official SUNA news agency on Wednesday said Khartoum's twin city, Omdurman,"witnessed riots and illegal gatherings" that were dispersed by tear gas.


 

Police spokesmanHashim Abdelrahimconfirmedthat three protesters had died and several injuredduring the anti-government demonstrations.




"We are investigating," he said, without specifying how the protesters died.

Wednesday's competing rallies in Sudan followed a month of angry street protests over a government decision to triple the price of bread at a time when the country faces an acute shortage of foreign currency and a high inflation rate of 70 percent.

Authorities say at least 22 people, including two security personnel, have been killedsince December 19 during the demonstrations.Human Rights Watchhas put the death toll at 40.


On Wednesday, about 300 protesters, chanting "freedom, peace and justice", blocked a key road in Omdurman, but were quickly confronted with tear gas as riot police moved in to disperse them.


Protesters are demanding the removal of President Bashir, the 74-year-old general-turned-politician, who has ruled the North African state since 1989.


More than 800 people have been arrested since the unrest began, said officials, insisting that the situation has now stabilised even as protests rumbled on.
