Military calls for snap elections

SUDAN – Sudan’s military leaders said they were scrapping all existing agreements with the main opposition coalition and will hold elections within nine months.

The announcement came as the military faced mounting international condemnation for their violent attack on protesters in the capital, Khartoum, which reportedly left at least 30 dead.

The crackdown came after the military and protesters agreed a three-year transition period to civilian rule.

Sudan was governed by a Transitional Military Council since President Omar al-Bashir was overthrown in a coup on April. (BBC)
