Sudan protest leaders, military rulers agree on joint council

A joint approach for the future of Sudan, military rulers and opposition groups reach a deal for a transition council.

    There has been a breakthrough in Sudan after weeks of a standoff between protesters and the military over how the country should be governed in the coming months.

    Protest leaders and the army have reached a deal to form a joint civilian-military council to discuss a peaceful transition to civilian rule.

    The military took charge earlier this month, after removing President Omar al-Bashir.
