Sudanese demonstrators have defied a curfew by continuing protests against a new ruling military council. The curfew was set up hours after the ouster of President Omar al-Bashir.
The protesters have gathered in the center of the capital Khartoum. The rallies came as Defense Minister, Awad Ibn Auf, was sworn in as the head of the military transitional council.
Ibn Auf said elections would be held at the end of a two-year transition period. He also announced a three-month state of emergency.
The Sudanese Professionals Association, which spearheaded the demonstrations against Bashir, has called for a faster transition to civilian rule.
