Sudan’s ruling military council Awad Ibn Auf resigned

The head of Sudan’s ruling military council Awad Ibn Auf has resigned a day after leading a coup that toppled long-time leader Omar al-Bashir.
Awad Ibn Auf announced his decision on state television, naming Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Burhan as his successor.
The army has said it will stay in power for two years, followed by elections.But the protesters said that they will not leave the streets until the military hands over to a civilian government.
Friday’s announcement of a future civilian government by the head of the military council’s political committee, General Omar Zain al-Abideen, appeared aimed at reassuring wary demonstrators who went back into the streets to warn against imposing army rule after Bashir’s ouster.
