Sudanese protesters criticize military for suspending talks

Sudanese opposition leaders behind the protests that drove President Omar al-Bashir from power last month on Thursday criticized the ruling military council for suspending negotiations with their representatives over a peaceful transfer of power to civilian rule.

The suspension dashed hopes of a speedy final deal between the military and the protesters that could resolve a standoff underway since the military ousted and arrested al-Bashir amid months-long protests against his 30-year rule.

The negotiations were suspended just hours after both the military council and the protesters announced on Wednesday they had made significant progress in their talks.
