Sudan's military rulers to protesters: No more 'chaos'
Issued on: Modified:
Sudan's ruling military council on Tuesday warned protesters against any further "chaos" as organizers call for mass rallies later this week. Gen. Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, the deputy head of the military council, said council members "are committed to negotiate, but no chaos after today." He reiterated the military's demand that protesters clear roads and railways, saying seven provinces were running low on food, water and fuel. The protesters have remained in the streets, demanding an immediate transfer to civilian rule and calling for mass rallies on Thursday. The two sides are negotiating the formation of a new transitional government but are divided over the role of the military, which is dominated by al-Bashir appointees.
