Sudan's Bashir charged over 'killing' of protesters

Sudan's Bashir charged over 'killing' of protesters

"At today's meeting we agreed on the structure of the sovereign council which will include military and civilian representatives", Taha Osman, a spokesman for the protest movement, said.

Sudan's Public Prosecutor Office has instructed expedited charges be bought against former President Omar al-Bashir in the killing of protestors, according to a statement released to CNN on Monday.

The military, which has since dissolved the government, has said it would remain in power for up to two years, despite renewed protests against their rule.

He is also facing an investigation over allegations of money laundering and terror financing.

A military council assumed power on 11 April, but demonstrators are insisting that it hands over to a civilian administration. In recent weeks they have threatened a general strike and civil disobedience.

Top territories include Russian Federation with $2.4 million, Germany with $1.8 million, and Australia with $1.8 million. Whether or not it will pass Avatar ($2.78B) to become the highest-grossing film of all time still remains in question.

Lieutenant-General Shams al-Din Kabashi, spokesman for the military council, said the generals met with protest leaders on Monday and agreed on the structure of transitional bodies.

"The protesters are represented by the Forces for the Declaration of Freedom and Change, a coalition of opposition groups led by the Sudanese Professionals Association, which has spearheaded the protests since December".

The protesters have vowed to continue demonstrations, centred on the sit-in outside the military headquarters and called for a series of nationwide protests, including another march to the main sit-in, in the coming week.

The two sides are divided over what role the military, dominated by al-Bashir appointees, should play in the transitional period. They had long viewed al-Bashir as a problem because of his close ties to Islamists.

The situation has escalated on Sunday around the location of the sit-in in the headquarters of the Sudanese army, and protesters closed the Nile Street, one of the main streets in central Khartoum.
