Efforts for civilian rule in Sudan intensify

At least 10 people have died and more than 180 injured in demonstrations in Sudan.

Residents took to the streets across the country to pressure the country's ruling generals to hand over power to a civilian-led administration.

Sudan has been in turmoil since the military ousted President Omar al-Bashir in April.

Lee Kasumba speaks to Sudanese Doctors Union president Dr Sara Abdelgalil on the importance of the march and what their demands are.
