The United States has reiterated its call for the military to hand over power to a civilian-led transition body saying they supported what the Sudanese people wanted.
Its latest statement on the post-Bashir crisis was issued by the Department of State on Thursday – the same day that a massive protest rocked the capital, Khartoum.
In the course of this week, the African Union has given a stern warning to the Transitional Military Council over possible expulsion from the continental bloc.
Ousted president Omar al-Bashir has been transferred to a maximum security prison in Khartoum. Two of his brothers have also been detained according to the military as part of efforts to “uproot symbols of the regime.”
