Video show armed forces shooting live ammunition amidst protests in the Sudanese capital on Wednesday. At least nine people were wounded when the Sudanese security forces used live ammunition to clear demonstrators from central Khartoum, a protest group said. It came ahead of a meeting on who will run the country as it transitions to democracy.

Early on Wednesday the military announced a committee would investigate the targeting of protesters after at least four people were killed in violence in Khartoum on Monday. Weeks of street protests have continued as the opposition demands that the military hand over power to civilians.
