Sudan Cuts Phone and Internet to Curb Protests; 2 Killed

Mobile phone and internet services have been cut off in Sudan as mass protests against the coup grow.

“Alert: #Sudan is now in the midst of a near-total telecommunications blackout, with fixed-line internet and calls cut as of 17 November 2021. The new disruption comes after 23 days of mobile blackouts which left the country largely disconnected,” said Netblocks.

Sudanese protesters took to the streets across Khartoum chanting “no to military power” while carrying banners and placards.

Security forces are also out on the streets in full force while there are unconfirmed reports that they have started using live ammunition against the protesters.

Sudan’s Central Doctors Committee reported that two protesters have already been fatally shot in Bahri.
