Sudan protesters 'to name transitional government'

The leaders of Sudan's protest movement say they will name members of a transitional authority on Sunday, to replace the current military junta, BBC reports.

Following months of protests, the army ousted long-standing leader Omar al-Bashir last week.

But the protesters want the military to hand power to a civilian authority.

To back up their demands, huge crowds once again gathered outside the military headquarters on Friday, chanting: "Freedom, peace and justice".

Thousand of people gathered in the centre of the capital, Khartoum, after Friday prayers in the biggest protests since Mr Bashir was forced from power, Reuters news agency reports.
