Sudan Braces For 'Million-Strong' Protest March

VOA: Sudan Protesters Call for 'Million March' for Civilian Rule

KHARTOUM, SUDAN — Three members of Sudan’s ruling Transitional Military Council have resigned, but their resignations are yet to be accepted, the TMC said late Wednesday.

Lieutenant-General Omar Zain al-Abideen who heads the TMC’s political committee was one of the resigning members, the TMC said in a statement. The two others were Lieutenant-General Jalal al-Deen al-Sheikh and Lieutenant-General Al-Tayeb Babakr Ali Fadeel.

Sudan's protest leaders have called for a million people to march Thursday to demand the military give power to a civilian council. The call came after the head of Sudan’s transitional military council said it would hand over power "within days" if civilian groups can agree on who will be in a new government.
