Heavy gunfire has been heard in Sudan‘s capital, Khartoum, as security forces forcefully moved in to clear a protest camp that has been the central point in the demonstrators’ months-long struggle for civilian rule.

The Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors, a medical group linked to protesters, said at least two people were killed and several wounded in the Monday morning raid, which was still in progress.

In a post on Twitter, the Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) said the country’s ruling Transitional Military Council (TMC) had assigned a large number of troops to disperse the protest camp.

The sound of heavy gunfire was heard in footage broadcast from the scene, while plumes of smoke rose into the sky.
