KHARTOUM (Reuters) – Eleven people were killed during security incidents in the capital Khartoum on Tuesday, including six members of “state forces”, the information minister said on Wednesday, citing a report by the Khartoum state police chief.

The minister, Hassan Ismail, who is also the government spokesman, gave no details on how they died. But Khartoum saw two attempts by security services personnel to disperse thousands of protesters camping outside the Defence Ministry, prompting army soldiers guarding the compound to intervene to protect them.
