KHARTOUM, April 12 (Xinhua) -- Sixteen people were killed and 20 others injured during gatherings in Sudan's capital city Khartoum on Thursday and Friday, Sudanese police announced Friday.

"Criminal police investigations indicated that 16 people were killed and 20 injured by stray bullets," Hashim Abdel-Rahim, Sudanese police spokesman, said in a statement.

He further said that the sit-ins and gatherings have affected the traffic and caused a big traffic jam in central Khartoum.
