Organisers of mass protests in Sudan have told the BBC they want the full dismantling of the “deep state” left behind by ousted leader Omar al-Bashir.

According to the BBC – Mr. Bashir was toppled by the army last week after 30 years in power and a military council has pledged elections in two years time.

But protesters remain camped outside army HQ in the capital, Khartoum, demanding a civilian administration.

Reports today said there had been efforts to disperse the sit-in but protesters joined hands and troops stepped back from a confrontation.

The Sudanese Professionals’ Association (SPA) which has spearheaded the protests, urged supporters to foil any attempt to disperse the sit-in.
