Khartoum - Sudanese police fired live ammunition at mourners outside the home of a 60-year-old protester who died early on Friday from a gunshot wound he sustained on Thursday night, a Reuters witness said.
Around 2 000 mourners had gathered in the Burri neighbourhood where the man, Moawia Othman, was shot on Thursday. A child and a doctor were also shot dead in Burri on Thursday, the Sudan Doctors' Committee, a group linked to the opposition, said.
Stone-throwing protesters clashed with Sudanese security forces in the capital Khartoum on Thursday in the latest round of demonstrations against President Omar al-Bashir's rule that erupted a month ago.
Demonstrations also erupted in three other cities as part of a four-week long unrest that poses the most persistent challenge to Bashir's grip since he took power in a coup in 1989.
"We will continue to protest until the government falls because we want to provide a better life for our children," a 47-year-old teacher among the demonstrators said.
