Activists say Sudan's military attempted to break up sit

Sudanese demonstrators gather near the military

The statement comes a day after the transitional military council was formed and said it would take more than two years for a civil government to be established. It is now the newest country in the world.

Also on Sunday, the military council said it had arrested members of the former government and vowed to leave protests alone while stating that the former ruling National Congress party would be barred from participating in the interim government.

The SPA issued its demands hours after protesters blocked an attempt to break up a sit-in outside the Defence Ministry that has continued despite Bashir's exit, a Reuters witness said.

A 10-member delegation representing the protesters delivered a list of demands during talks with the council late Saturday, according to a statement by the Alliance for Freedom and Change umbrella group.

The Sudanese Professionals' Association (SPA) which has spearheaded the anti-government protests called on the Military Council to immediately hand over power to a consensus civilian government during the transitional period with a civilian transitional council, under the protection of the armed forces. "We want to set up a civilian state based on freedom, justice and democracy", one council member, Lt Gen Yasser al-Ata, told members of several political parties.

"Remember, we are talking about a regime that has been deep-rooted in power for 30 years, so the SPA and other powers behind this protest know. that the top ranks of the military, those who have staged this coup, will not easily give up the power that the military used to have in Sudan", Vall said.

Dagalo, known by his nickname Hemedti, heads Sudan's Rapid Support Forces (RSF), which human rights groups have accused of widespread abuses in the western region of Darfur.

Al-Bashir, who came to power in an Islamist coup in 1989, imposed a nationwide state of emergency February 22 in an attempt to suppress the protests after an initial crackdown failed.

In a communique on Monday, the African Union's Peace and Security Council called for Sudan's military to transfer power to a "transitional civilian-led political authority" within 15 days or face suspension from the AU. Tens of thousands of people have massed non-stop outside the army headquarters since April 6, initially urging the military to back their demand for Bashir's removal.

Hemedti has also met with other Western diplomats, including the us chargé d'affaires and Dutch ambassador to Sudan.

"The RSF and army forces claim they seek to remove the roadblocks to clean the area but the protesters refuse", a demonstrator tasked with protecting the camp, who preferred to remain unnamed, told Anadolu Agency.

Sudan is part of a UAE- and Saudi-led military coalition fighting Houthi rebels in Yemen.

The gas-rich country is locked in a almost two-year-old diplomatic standoff with Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt.
