Sudanese police fired tear gas at protesters who took to the streets of the capital Khartoum and its twin city Omdurman after midday prayers on Friday, witnesses told AFP.

Crowds chanting “freedom, peace, justice” demonstrated in two areas of Khartoum and in Omdurman just across the Nile.

Friday’s protests came after organisers called for nationwide demonstrations over the next week.
