Sudan protesters demand immediate handover of power to civilian government under army protection

CAIRO (Reuters) - Sudan’s main protest group on Sunday called for the immediate handover of power to a civilian transitional government and said it would maintain street demonstrations to push for its aims.

Such a transitional council should be protected by the Sudanese armed forces, the Sudanese Professionals Association said in a statement.

“The Sudanese Professionals Association affirms the continuation of the sit-in and the exercise of all forms of peaceful pressure to achieve the objectives of the revolution,” it said.
