Protests have continued across the country as demonstrators rebuild barricades demolished by security forces.
Seven protesters have been confirmed killed since Monday by morgues in the capital Khartoum and its sister city Omdurman, a health official said.
More bodies have since been received, the official said, with wounds caused by "sharp tools".
General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, Sudan's de facto leader since the 2019 ouster of dictator Omar Al-Bashir, dissolved the fragile government meant to shepherd the country to full civilian rule on Monday.
The takeover sparked international condemnation.
