Protests against fuel price hikes gathered pace on Friday as demonstrators took to the streets in several cities amid heavy police presence after weekly Muslim prayers, witnesses said.
Activists have accused the security forces of shooting dead 50 people since Monday, when the protests first erupted and turned into anti-government demonstrations.
They called for Friday's protests.
Around 2,000 protesters marched in Omdurman, the capital's twin city, chanting anti-army slogans and calling for a halt to fuel price hikes, witnesses and an AFP correspondent said.
