Sudan: Over 50 Dead So Far

The demonstrations continue in Sudan, and the death toll has reportedly passed 50. An Amnesty International Report adds:
Local sources and activists have put the figure much higher, in excess of 100, and at the time of writing the two organizations were still receiving reports of shootings and excessive use of force.
 Apparently the authorities are using live ammunition and lethal force against unarmed demonstrators.
