Sudanese protesters strike over civilian rule, challenging army

Two-day nationwide strike in Sudan to pressurise army to pave way for civilian transitional government.

by

    The Sudanese Professionals Association (SFA) has organised a two-day walkout, bringing the country's capital Khartoum to a near halt, shutting major transportation hubs.

    The SFA says the military government which has replaced former President Omar al-Bashir, is not negotiating in good faith.

    Protesters hope it will force military leaders into a new round of negotiations to hand power to a civilian-run administration.

    Al Jazeera's Imran Khan reports from Khartoum.
