Sudan’s military defended itself against accusations that the armed forces used live ammunition against protesters on the streets of the capital, Khartoum.
At least four demonstrators and a soldier died and 40 people were reportedly wounded by gunfire.
But in an overnight press briefing, the transitional military council said it would never fire on peaceful protesters.
