At least 35 protesters were killed and hundreds injured Monday in Khartoum when the Sudanese military opened fire to break up a sit-in، according to a local doctors' union, CNN reported on Wednesday.

The Central Committee of Sudan Doctors (CCSD) said critically injured patients are still in operating rooms and intensive care. The Sudanese military has denied any involvement.

Sudanese Attorney General Maulana Al-Walid Sayed Ahmed Mahmoud announced that a committee had been created to investigate "the events" that took place in the area of the armed forces' general command in Khartoum، state media outlet SUNA reported.

The committee will be made of up of officials -- including the heads of public prosecution، senior prosecutors، police representatives and representatives of the military judiciary، the attorney general said.

However، similar vows to investigate protester deaths during the rule of ousted former President Omar al-Bashir were insufficient to appease demonstrators at the time، and the committee's creation does not appear likely to mollify them now.
