The clashes in the capital, Khartoum are compounding an already chaotic situation where protesters are demanding a civilian regime immediately.

Sudan continues to reel under chaos since former president Omar al-Bashir was overthrown in a military coup.
Public prosecutors have already charged former President Omar al-Bashir for the death of protesters prior to is exit
He was charged with inciting and the subsequent killing of protesters who for weeks demanded his exit.
Hundreds were killed during the weeks of protests with several others sustaining injuries, actions that finally led to Bashir’s overthrow.
An inquiry was launched into the death of a medic killed during protests. This finding led to the charging of the former leader.

He is facing prosecution after military intelligence searched his home and found suitcases with more than $351,000.
Currency worth six million euros and five million Sudanese pounds were also found, according to the judicial sources.
