Organisers of mass protests in Sudan are demanding full dismantling of what they called the deep state left behind by ousted leader, Omar al-Bashir as well as trial of leaders of the past regime.
Former President Bashir was toppled by the army last week after thirty years in power and a military council has pledged elections in two years time.
But protesters remain camped outside army headquarters in the capital, Khartoum, demanding a civilian administration.
Reports today said there had been efforts to break up the sit-in, but witnesses said troops had stepped back from immediate confrontation.
On Sunday the transitional military council sought to appease protest leaders, telling them that key figures from the former government had been arrested. A military spokesman also promised not to disperse protesters and said the council was ready to implement whatever civilian government the opposition parties agreed.
