Sudanese opposition medics say the death toll from a crackdown on protesters in the capital Khartoum has jumped to over 100. The country's ruling military council says it has begun a "fair and independent" investigation into the violence.
After the military council used brutal force against civilian protesters, the situation in Sudan has continued to escalate. Now German politicians are debating if rejected asylum seekers can still be deported there.
Sudan's military council and opposition groups have agreed to resume talks on the formation of a transitional council. The opposition alliance has also decided to suspend its campaign of civil disobedience.
The military council said it will not uphold an agreement with the opposition after it rejected a plan for quicker elections. Demonstrators called the deaths of more than 100 people a "bloody massacre."
The Sudanese military has promised elections after its agreement with the main opposition coalition broke down. The announcement comes after dozens of protesters were killed by the army and militia.
