Sudan: BBC investigation reveals mistreatment of female demonstrators

It has been five months since Sudan’s military staged a coup that ended a power-sharing deal with civilian leaders. Every week since then, pro-democracy demonstrators have taken to the streets to challenge the junta’s authority. More than 80 people were killed as security forces broke up the protests.

Many of those who take to the streets are young women. But there are growing reports of security forces subjecting them to beatings, sexual harassment and rape to silence them.

Our Africa correspondent Katherine Byaruhanga investigated these allegations in Khartoum.
