Khartoum — On Sunday, doctors at Bashayer Hospital in Khartoum went on strike in protest after two doctors, including a medical specialist, were assaulted by police while they were on duty.
In a statement, the Sudan Central Doctors Committee demanded the arrest of the alleged perpetrators. They also demanded for a better working environment, better services, replacing the security guards, as well as providing legal protection for doctors and other medical and health personnel.
The doctors' committee held a long meeting Tuesday night regarding the issue.
In a separate incident in North Kordofan on Sunday, doctors decided to continue their strike for the second day against an attack by a regular Sudanese army soldier on a colleague doctor while she was on duty.
A health source told Radio Dabanga that the doctors demanded for the dismissal of the state health director.
