The deployments are a sign of government’s move to avoid the protests from taking place. The same tactic has been used as security forces thwart protest plans.
Despite security deployments, hundreds have taken to the streets in anti-government protests that have been met with a wave of arrests according to journalists covering the incident.
Protests are taking place in Bahri and towns like Al-Fao, Al-Fasher, Amri and Gadarif. There are running battles as the military tries using tear gas to disperse people.
