Sudan:More than 150 dead and use of heavy weapons against civilians
The death toll of Sudanese protesters dramatically increased after the night protests and the resume of the internet services at 2:00PM. The Sudanese Doctors Union, an independent union, announced to the media that there is confirmed 110 deaths in the Khartoum hospitals alone from Wednesday, 25 September, 2013 protests. The increase in the death toll also came in result of the lack of enough medical care for injured peoples, putting in mind that Sudan has no ambulance and emergency health care system that can transfer the injured victims with the international medical protocols that protect the patients’ lives. Moreover, there is serious fear among protesters from going to hospitals, in fear from being arrested. According to witnesses the numbers of injured peoples is beyond the hospitals capacities, and there is many injured peoples couldn’t have any medical care for hours or even left public hospitals to seek private medical care, which is not available for most of the poor protesters.
