The military and other security forces used excessive force.
The long-time ruler Omar al-Bashir was overthrown in a revolution in 2019. The military and civilians lead the interim government together, including General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and the civilian Prime Minister Abdullah Hamduk. The general overthrew the government, according to his own account, because of sustained demonstrations for faster political and economic reforms. Hamduk is under house arrest. The general declared a state of emergency and raided the media. The internet was turned off.
