Protesters flood to Sudan capital for 'million-strong' march

Sudanese demonstrators have been maintaining a 24/7 sit-in at the gates of the army headquarters since the beginning of April. Months of protests helped the military topple the autocratic president, Omar al-Bashir three weeks ago, ending his three decades in power. Now protest leaders are negotiating for a transition to civilian rule. Last Saturday the military agreed to a joint civilian and military council, but the two sides remain at odds over its makeup. To keep up the pressure, the protest leaders are calling for a "million strong" march this Thursday. People from all over the country are flooding to Khartoum to join the demonstration.
