Thousands of protesters in Sudan demand transition to civilian rule

Tens of thousands of people are protesting across Sudan, in a resurgence of the uprising that stalled earlier this month after a violent crackdown by the military-led government.

Long-term dictator Omar al-Bashir was ousted in April following a popular revolt against his presidency.

A transitional military council quickly stepped into his place – but the protesters are demanding it hands over power to civilian led rule.
