Members of a feared paramilitary group are reported to be roaming the streets attacking civilians.

CNN reported that violence began when forces of the Transitional Military Council (TMC) opened fire on unarmed protesters on Monday.

At least 60 people are dead and over 300 injured after troops stormed the main camp of pro-democracy protesters in Sudan's capital, according to the Central Committee of Sudan Doctors (CCSD).

Videos showed billowing smoke and scenes of panic as the military tried to break up an opposition sit-in in the capital, Khartoum.

The demonstrators have demanded that the Transitional Military Council, which has ruled the country since troops ousted longtime President Omar al-Bashir in April, make way for a civilian-led interim body.
