A doctor and a child were killed in Sudan protests on Thursday, according to Reuters citing Doctor's committee linked to opposition.

Stone-throwing protesters clashed with Sudanese security forces in the capital Khartoum on Thursday in the latest round of demonstrations against President Omar al-Bashir’s rule that erupted a month ago.

Demonstrations also erupted in three other cities as part of a four-week long unrest that poses the most persistent challenge to Bashir’s grip since he took power in a coup in 1989.
