Khartoum: Thousands of people were marching towards Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir’s residence and the defence ministry in central Khartoum on Saturday, witnesses said, part of anti-government protests that began in December.

Chanting “One Army, One People,” protesters rallied in the capital’s streets, following a call by organisers to march on the army headquarters.

They said security forces were using tear gas to try to disperse the demonstrators, who had converged on the compound from three directions.
