Tear Gas Fired

Dec 1, 2021

At approximately 1420 UTC on 30 November 2021, security personnel fired tear gas to disperse demonstrators near the Republican Palace in Khartoum. The incident occurred after more than 10,000 demonstrators rallied near the palace to protest a deal that restored civilian Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok to power following last month’s dissolution of the ruling Sovereign Council by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan. Demonstrators believe the civilian government has been stripped of power and are demanding the military remove itself from the government and submit to civilian rule. Reports of injuries or arrests are unavailable.
