Protesters Salute Sudanese Soldiers

The Sudanese army announced on Thursday the formation of a transitional council after the resignaiton of Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir, Al-Arabiya TV has reported.

In what has become the biggest challenge yet to Bashir's three decades of iron-fisted rule, crowds of demonstrators continued to throng the sprawling complex at night, singing and dancing to the tunes of revolutionary songs, witnesses said.

Hundreds of mobile phones were held aloft, shining a sea of lights on the tide of people massed outside the buildings.

They fired tear gas and shot in the air as they approached the area, witnesses said, adding that soldiers intervened again firing in the air.

"We believe that the support from the soldiers on the ground and now the police is definitely growing".

Sudan's state news agency says the country's ruling party will organize a rally this week in support of embattled President Omar al-Bashir, who has weathered four months of protests calling for his resignation.

However, one source based in Khartoum told People's Dispatch that these forces were actually militia of the ruling National Congress party (NCP), who have been incorporated as a sort of a "special force" within the NISS.

Activists behind anti-government protests in Sudan say security forces have killed at least seven people, including a military officer, in another attempt to break up the sit-in outside the military headquarters in Khartoum.

Several military vehicles carrying troops entered the army compound in the early hours of Thursday, witnesses told AFP.

Security forces have come down hard on the protesters with tear gas, rubber bullets, live ammunition and batons.

"It seems the police too are now with us", said the protester.

It added that police had "ordered all its forces" not to "intervene against the citizens or peaceful rallies".

Tibor Nagy, the USA assistant secretary of state for Africa, said he was "heartened" at the relative calm overnight Tuesday after police ordered forces not to intervene.

Once the protesters reached the headquarters and began the sit-in demonstration, soldiers came out to mingle with the crowd, and distributed water and refreshments to protesters who had marched under the scorching sun.

"Many shop owners and businessmen have offered us free supplies", said another demonstrator.

The citizens have been protesting from December previous year following the economic crisis and the governments bid to increase the price of bread.

Mr Al Bashir has been defiant despite the protests, and imposed a series of tough measures, such as declaring a state of emergency.

"Is there an attempt to get around the anger of the Sudanese people after they failed to end the protests by violence?"

Defence Minister General Awad Ibnouf vowed the army would prevent any slide into chaos.

"It indicates that the middle rank and lower rank in the army forces are not happy with what's happening and they are supporting the Sudan uprising", said Abdelgalil by telephone early on Wednesday morning.

Both Medani and Reeve agree that Sudan and the protest leaders have the institutional history needed for economic rehabilitation and there is potential for stability, if the SPA plans for a technocratic civilian government are realized in the future.
