After President Omar al-Bashir was overthrown, protests continued until army rulers announced an agreement with opposition groups for a transition to a civilian government. DW met up with people who have been standing up for change in Sudan.
Sudan's military council has said that talks with protesters over installing civilian rule have been suspended for 72 hours. Talks have been marred by street violence, with several people wounded.
Armed groups have killed at least five protesters at a sit-in outside the military headquarters in Khartoum. Earlier, the opposition and the military council reached a deal on the country's future governing structure.
Over the past days, thousands have defied violence to camp outside Sudan's Defense Ministry. Growing support within the army and police could tilt the campaign for al-Bashir's ouster in the cheering protesters' favor.
Sudan's military rulers and protest movement leaders have set a time frame for transitioning to full civilian rule. A final agreement, including details on the eventual ruling body, is expected in the next day.
