What Uhuru told Al-Bashir two months to his ouster

African Union chief Moussa Faki

Sudan's army has ousted veteran president Omar al-Bashir, but protestors against his iron-fisted rule denounced a "coup" and thousands rallied outside army headquarters as a night-time curfew kicked in.

So when Mr Auf appeared on state television Thursday to announce that the military had taken power for two years, had suspended the constitution and declared an emergency for three months, it was hardly what the protesters had bargained for.

One protester, Suha Ahmed, said Bashir opponents will not accept two more years of military rule.

She also warned that Defense Minister Awad Mohammed Ibn Ouf, who announced the imposition of a military-led transition, was someone with a history of participation "in excessive violence and killing of civilians".

The main organizer of protests against Bashir, the Sudanese Professionals Association, rejected Ibn Auf's plans.

Mr Ibnauf and his deputy army chief of staff Kamal AbdelMarouf have now the arduous task of proving to the world that the fear of a continuation of Bashir's highhandedness are unfounded.

The foreign ministry expressed in a statement "full support" for the "brotherly" Sudanese people and their "loyal" army to "overcome the challenges of this critical stage.in order to achieve stability, prosperity and development".

Instead, he is Bashir would be tried in Sudan.

Rights group Amnesty says the coup in Sudan is a wake up call to leaders who deny people their basic rights.

Thousands kept up their sit-in outside the military headquarters in Khartoum overnight and into Friday morning despite a curfew imposed by the army after it arrested al-Bashir.

Pence urges Security Council to revoke Venezuela credentials
Ambassador, you shouldn't be here", he said, looking directly at the representative, Samuel Moncada, who was in the room.

With the U.S. also taking a visibly withdrawn role in the second phase of the Arab Spring the worldwide resolve to enforce a return to civilian rule in Sudan appears suspect. He said Mr Bashir was being held "in a secure place" but did not give details.

Al-Bashir, wanted by the International Criminal Court, faces charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide for his deadly campaign against insurgents in Darfur, where up to 300,000 people were killed and 2.7 million driven from their homes by militias he backed. "Some people are suggesting that we should follow South Africa's path or the Moroccan, or perhaps Truth and Justice [Commission], where people will try to solve this by traditional Sudanese and African means".

The head of Sudan's provisional military political council has said that the army has "no ambition to hold the reins of power", and stressed that "we are ready to step down in as early as a month if a government is formed".

The US accuses him of having been the link between the government and the Janjaweed militias.

He said the military council had no solutions to Sudan's crisis and these would come from the protesters.

He was then the head of military intelligence and security.

He pledged the military would stay on only as long as it's needed, or for a maximum of two years.

"The transitional authorities must take all necessary measures to facilitate a peaceful transfer of power in Sudan".

Bashir was forced out of power by a popular uprising that started on 19 December 19, last year.
