Sudan is under a wave of demonstrations demanding the return of the military to their barracks and the integration of a civilian government in charge of leading the country until the holding of general elections, as the final end to the harsh government of General Omar al Bachir, overthrown three years ago on Sunday.

Most police and military detachments are concentrated in the entrances to the Presidential Palace, the concentration point of the protest, called by the Forces for Freedom and Change (FCC), a coalition of political parties and professional groups.

In October, the STC president, General Abdel Fattah al Burhan, dissolved that body and integrated another, also led by himself, dismissed the government and imposed a state of exception in what he described as a rectification movement that was received with mass protests on the streets, leaving behind some 40 dead and hundreds injured.

Popular unrest forced Burhan to back down and agree to reinstate deposed Prime Minister Abdallah Hamduk, but he only got a wave of criticisms although the United Nations backed the deal.
