At least six people were killed and dozens were injured in clashes between protesters and security forces in the eastern Sudanese city of Kassala.

And medical sources told the BBC at Medina Hospital that the deaths occurred as a result of gunshot wounds in different parts of the body.

This morning, Kassala witnessed a protest march in which hundreds participated, rejecting the government’s decision to exempt the Wali of Kassala from his post.

The Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok exempted the governor, Saleh Ammar, from his post after tribal elements protested against his appointment and prevented him from assuming the position as he represents one of the tribal components in eastern Sudan.
