Death Toll from Crackdown in Sudan Rises to 60

KHARTOUM: The number of people killed in a crackdown on pro-democracy protests in the Sudanese capital Khartoum has risen to 60.

Members of a feared paramilitary group are reported to be roaming the streets attacking civilians.

The violence began when forces of the Transitional Military Council (TMC) opened fire on unarmed protesters on Monday.

The military has faced international condemnation for the attack.

An attempt at the UN Security Council to condemn the violence was blocked on Tuesday by China, backed by Russia.
