Sudan military council must hand power to civilians in 60 days


The African Union said Sudan’s military rulers should hand power to a civilian-led transitional authority within 60 days.

In a statement, the AU noted “with deep regret” the military had not stepped aside and handed power to civilians within the 15-day period set by the AU last month. The 60 days are a final extension for Sudan’s Transitional Military Council to hand power to civilians, the AU said.
