As part of protests against the Sudan military coup, Sudanese protesters have barricaded roads in the capital, Khartoum.
On Saturday, three people were killed when security fired shots and tear gas to disperse protesters in the nearby city of Omdurman, medics revealed.
However, the interior ministry denied that live rounds had been fired.
The Sudanese military grabbed power on Monday last week,
detaining Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok among other civilian leaders.
On Sunday, the UN’s Sudan envoy, Volker Perthes, met Mr Hamdok at his residence.
According to Perthes, Hamdok was well but remained under house arrest.
“We discussed options for mediation and the way forward for Sudan,” he added.
Head of the coup Gen Abdel Fattah Burhan dissolved civilian rule on Monday.
The general, who also announced the state of emergency, said his actions were justified to avoid “civil war” and stop political infighting. The military coup has attracted widespread international condemnation.
The biggest protests were seen on Saturday with tens of thousands marching across the country with Sudanese flags and chanting, “No to military rule!”
“These protests are going to continue being peaceful even when faced with the guns,” Shaheen al Shaheef, a member of the Khartoum Resistance Committee, told the BBC.
Over 10 protesters died in clashes with security forces last week.
Further, the Sudanese authorities have shut down the internet among other communications.
