Five demonstrators, including four students, were killed on Monday (July 29, 2019) in the central city of Al-Abyad and several others were injured, the Sudan Central Committee of Physicians close to the protest movement said.

The committee declared in a statement: "Just five martyrs rose directly after being shot by snipers in the city of Al-Abyad (capital of North Kordofan state in the center of the country) after their departure in the convoy of high school peaceful," noting that "the presence of a large number of injuries, some critical."

The protests come on the eve of the resumption of negotiations on the constitutional declaration on the formation of a civilian government in the transitional period.

On 17 July, army and protest leaders initialed a "political declaration" to form a joint military-civilian council to establish a transitional administration to run the country for a 39-month period, one of the main demands of the protesters.

Before the resumption of negotiations, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi met on Monday morning with the deputy head of the transitional military council in Sudan, Mohamed Hamdan Daklou, known as "Hamidati" and discussed with him the situation in Sudan, according to presidential spokesman Bassam Radi. Radi said in a press statement that Hamidati "reviewed (with the Egyptian President) developments of the current situation in Sudan."

This is the first meeting between the two military commanders since the fall of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir in April. Sisi stressed "the firm strategic position of Egypt towards supporting the stability and security of Sudan and its brotherly people," according to a spokesman for the Egyptian presidency. Radi said that "the meeting dealt with some aspects of bilateral relations, particularly the projects of electricity linkage between the two countries."

In May, the head of Sudan's military junta met Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Burhan in Cairo on his first visit abroad since taking office.
