Sudan transition talks to resume today

Talks between protest leaders in Sudan and the military are set to resume on Monday, in the latest effort to reach agreement on a political transition following the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir last month.

The two sides have disagreed over the composition of a transitional council but the coalition of activists and opposition political groups – known as the Declaration of Freedom and Change – says it hopes to reach an agreement with the military generals within 72 hours.

Protesters are still holding a sit-in outside the military headquarters insisting that the military hands over to a civilian administration.

On Sunday, the Sudanese military dispersed protesters who had blocked a busy street in the capital, Khartoum.
