Mourners in Sudan are burying protesters they say were shot to death by the government's security forces during a week-long wave of demonstrations against the government.

The regime of President Omar al-Bashir is trying to stop public anger over fuel price hikes from turning into an Arab Spring-style uprising against his 24-year rule.

Women at the funeral of 26-year-old pharmacist Salah al-Sanhouri marched into the street chanting "Rebel! Rebel!" as his male relatives laid him to rest in a Khartoum cemetery early Saturday.

His relatives say he was shot in the street outside his pharmacy as a march went by Friday.

Rights groups say dozens of people have killed in a week of protests.
