Activists warned of an attempt to disperse a 10-day-old mass protest outside army headquarters on Monday, as Sudan’s new military rulers came under rising pressure to hand power to a civilian government.
Thousands of protesters have massed at the army complex since Saturday, urging the military to back them in demanding the resignation of President Omar Al Bashir and the formation of a transitional government.
Protest leaders were to hold talks on Saturday with Sudan’s military rulers who have so far resisted calls to transfer power to a civilian administration, leading figures in the protest movement said.
Sudan’s ruling military transferred former president Omar Al Bashir to a prison in the country’s capital as hundreds of people marched on Wednesday to a sit-in outside the army headquarters in Khartoum, calling for a quick handover of power to a civilian leadership.
