WAU, 04 January 2019 [Gurtong] - The activist who is based in Khartoum said the four were killed after being caught on the road while returning home from their work places.

Achol said many others have also been arrested and taken to Khartoum central prison immediately without being investigated.

In her statement, the activist condemns the Sudanese government’s decision to carry out what she described as a brutal action on innocent refugees in what the government alleged that the south Sudanese were taking part in the demonstration.

“Those who have been arrested are more than those who have been
injured,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Human rights group Amnesty International has put the death toll at 37 and UN Chief Antonio Guterres has called for an investigation into the deadly protest.

The protest erupted in the Sudanese capital Khartoum and other major towns in Sudan earlier in December last year triggered by the increase of bread and fuel prices.
