Sudan crackdown: At least 100 dead after attacks on protesters

Opposition group says hundreds are being treated for critical injuries amid reports of bodies dumped in the Nile.

At least 100 people have been killed in a two-day crackdown on Sudanese protesters carried out by troops and paramilitaries, a doctors' committee close to the demonstrators said on Wednesday.

It said it had received eyewitness reports of bodies still to be recovered from the site of the sit-in as well as reports of bodies being dumped in the Nile by security forces.

Talks rejected
A Sudanese alliance of protesters and opposition groups on Wednesday rejected the ruling military council's invitation to talks.

Burhan had said on Wednesday that the council was still open to talks with opposition groups without any conditions.

The TMC leader made the comments in a message to mark the Muslim Eid al-Fitr holiday, one day after he announced that the council was cancelling all agreements with a coalition of protesters and opposition groups and would instead call national elections within nine months.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the head of the Transitional Military Council (TMC), a word, please; you may not have 9 months in which to hold an election; you need to bump up the date to a sooner point in time.
