Sudan's capital Khartoum was on Monday, June 3, turned into a bloody battlefield between the security forces and stubborn civilians demanding for a radical regime change.

Chaos broke out when the Transitional Military Council (TMC), which took over after the army deposed and imprisoned the now former president Omar al-Bashir, dispatched troops to the capital to disperse protesters demanding for a civilian rule.

The army, however, denied reports it had sent soldiers to kill civilians saying the security forces were only pursuing 'unruly elements' allegedly responsible for causing chaos.

“The Transitional Military Council regrets the way the situation unfolded, reaffirming its full commitment to the safety of the citizens and renews call for negotiations as soon as possible,” the council said in a statement amid rising tension and global concern over the latest killings.

United Nations (UN) Human Rights on Monday condemned the use of live ammunition on protesters and the reported killings in Sudan.

The UN also called for a speedy transition to a civilian government as was being demanded by the protesting citizens.

"We deplore the use of live ammunition in protest camps, targeting #peaceful protestors who have been an inspiration over the past months. We call for a swift transition to a civilian administration, #justice & an end to impunity," the organisation said.

There was some hope Sudan would regain peace and political stability when Bashir's near three-decade rule ended in April 2019 following months of street protests against him.

However, the much needed peace and stability remained elusive as the civilians, feeling shortaged by the army, continued to demand for a civilian rule saying they were tired of a military rule and would only leave the streets once their demands are met.
