Sudan: Protesters keep up pressure on military leaders in Khartoum

Sudan, Khartoum
April 26, 2019 at 16:07 GMT +00:00 · Published

Tens of thousands of people protested in front of Sudan's defence ministry in Khartoum on Friday, as part of an ongoing protest requesting a transitional civilian-led government after a military coup toppled former President Omar al-Bashir on April 11.

Demonstrators demanded an end to the military council's rule and a transition to civilian rule after Al-Bashir's ousting.

The military council said on Thursday that it would allow civilians to form the government, but it would hold on to presidential powers. Three officials from the 10-member group resigned in protest on Wednesday.

The opposition and the council had previously agreed to set up a joint committee to find a political solution, but so far no agreement has been reached.
