Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Protesters take to the streets in Sudan after military coup” – below is their description.

Pro-democracy protesters have taken to the streets again in the Sudanese capital Khartoum – a day after the military seized power in a coup.

The country’s ruling general claimed that troops had taken control to prevent a civil war, and said the deposed Prime Minister was being held at his own home “for his own safety”.

Phone and internet services in the country are still severely disrupted – while the capital’s airport has also been closed.
