Thousands camp outside Sudan’s military headquarters demanding civilian rule

Protest leaders in Sudan say they’ll name a new civilian body this weekend – which they hope will take over power from the country’s ruling military council.

Thousands of people are still camping out in front of the military headquarters in the capital Khartoum – demanding an immediate transition to civilian rule.

Today’s crowds were the biggest since Omar al Bashir was forced from power. From Khartoum, Yousra Elbagir reports.
