well one of the conditions that have been placed by political parties and the sudanese professional association which has been spearheading the government process for the past four months is the abolishing of the in the national intelligence and security services which was headed by one man now he has resigned and people are very happy we can already hear the celebrations on the streets nowadays they have been eagerly following the national news since they started protesting and for them that means that the security service that's basically a victory that means that the head of the military council. one hand may actually be listening to them even before he has issued a statement we yet to hear from the new leader of sudan who has who has been sworn in last night who would we not we're not sure what his roadmap is nobody knows he's currently in consultations with other military heads and security heads about the way forward concerning the fact that his predecessor did not last twenty four hours
7:37 pm

coming hours here on al-jazeera another making the idea of making reparations to the ancestors of enslaved people is being actively discussed right now the united states it's become an issue in the presidential race and now on college campuses patty culhane reports from washington. short coloma is not your typical first year student at the prestigious georgetown university in washington d.c. and not because she's a few decades older than the typical student look at what my family did. look at what my family. her family is the reason georgetown didn't go bankrupt one hundred eighty years ago robert and mary mulholland me my four times great grandparents were sold with their ten cells and they were slaves owned by a roman catholic order the jesuits who ran the school and among the group of two hundred seventy two slaves that were sold by the school so it could continue to

7:40 pm
twenty years to close the wealth gap i think reparations can be a step still this is a controversial discussion but one that cologne believes needs to be talked about and to those who say this is history a part of the past days or so with thousands of years ago we still talk about him the fundraise about four. hundred thousand dollars a year and the plan is to spend that money on charities to help the descendants where most of them live in louisiana and maryland the board of regents though still has to approve it and it's not at all clear that they will decide that this should be the first of its kind reparations program in the country. al-jazeera washington . now this for his son a thank you very much to adrian while tiger woods has put himself in contention at the half way say to alfie in moscow. the fourteen time major winner had a great second round but it wasn't without its occupation has it's always reports.

7:51 pm
we've seen today and the way the military stood with doesn't listen to our demands is something that has never happened before we will be talking about this victory to the future generations. the new leader abdul fatah what han is the inspector general of the military and like former president bashir and his predecessor and now all of who are both accused of war crimes in the western region of darfur he doesn't seem to have a tainted past raising hopes that he may be able to appease the thousands who have been protesting for months the protests began in december over a steep hike in bread prices and the deteriorating economy since last saturday thousands have been demonstrating in front of the military headquarters in her town demanding this year's resignation. according to the central committee of sudanese doctors dozens have been killed in violence with security forces which have repeatedly tried to disperse the sit in by force while the decision of opting for the one hundred seems largely welcome some say a civilian council is the only option for
7:52 pm
a transitional government. that actually be able to be on the street until we see a handover of a to a civil government in. we want to see a civil government taken over for the transitional period you know we could have a. government but the leaders ship of the government should be coming from the city of the country is that to hear what's plan to happen for to hunt has for the military council and now the us and the transitional period ahead but for now the people of sudan seem to be focused on celebrating the fact that they were able to lead to leaders out of power in less than eight hours. her morgan joins us now live from khartoum let's start with the latest line that came in a short while ago hiper that the head of the intelligence services is stepping down what does that tell us about the shakeup going on right now.
7:53 pm
well at the moment sami we do know that the head of the military council effectively the leader of sudan is in consultations with the security top officials as well as military officials on who should be in the council and who should still be part of the government now people are celebrating the fact that. as he's known is no longer the head of national security and that his resignation has been accepted because the national security intelligence the national intelligence and security services organise as it's known is famous for targeting anti-government dissidents during bush's regime people have been announcing people have been conditioning the fact that this body this has to be abolished if talks are to go forward between political parties and the sudan sudanese professional association which has been spearheading the protests and the military council now the fact that . one has accepted the resignation is
7:54 pm
a signal of some kind of hope it seems to show the people in the streets are celebrating that he's willing to listen to some of their demands it's not clear if the whole national security body will be abolished there is no indication that this is going to happen but at the moment people are celebrating the fact that somebody who has been in the position of the head of intelligence from two thousand and four for five years and then again green feted in twenty eighteen has been removed from power from power after he's been targeting dissidents for a long time and how was the gathering outside of the army headquarters shaping up to go. well the thousands of people who were sitting outside the army headquarters for the past six days that number has considerably to decrease the downscale now people have been celebrating overnight about the fact that they managed to bring two leaders down and have somebody who doesn't have the same tainted past as the two previous leaders for president bashir and of two people who are accused of all. in the western region of darfur now
7:55 pm
people celebrated the fact that. the one doesn't have the same tainted history and skirt in the plaza that they know what he was involved in the sudanese participation in the side led coalition against their men and it's not clear if that will be a sticking point between the military council that he now leads and their political party some political parties have been opposing the sudanese participation in the war so his people are not as much on the streets as they were over the past hour six days and the past four months but they are saying that they are ready to go back on the streets and protest if the statement that is he is expected to be heard from her to what harm does not appease them and signals that there will be no civilian council which is what they're looking for in the transitional government or morgan there from khartoum i'm doing what is a professor of politics at the institute for graduate studies and joins us by skype
7:56 pm
now from london good to have you with us looking at the latest resignations we had to go. is gone apparently all of that a good sign that perhaps the military is looking at a more civilian transitional period. the. moment. the. work. this is number one but also i think within itself is a who is teaching. is. operating within. with his own intel and dynamic and let us remember that. the
7:57 pm
military are also professionals so they are like other professional organizations in the country they are doing it by their own boss who professional ethics in their own professional priorities. i mean what an aspect of it is to keep that. and keep a diary of that army together and it. will leave or at least another organization for sleeping in the n.a.s. which is important stuff and i think fact if it was done properly in the country so i. expect i mean i think i probably have some information that this has been false not only to the popular demand but also internal dynamics within the military itself so we i think we are seeing religion plus canyon. is there a process going on right now for talks between the s.b.a.
7:58 pm
for example some of the civilian leadership of the protest movement and the military about reshaping the transitional period. yes i think the directors who were sisters are probably now have more of the chances of success since the military have removed a number of the personalities of the protestors and the professional association and aunt would have liked to be speaking to them so i think they hear. we have heard from the from their mutual stocks person that they're not open to moving ground which was having a civilian decision they're ready to have actually that's immediate in government. right now if they can get a consensus around it but i think the you will be in the military establishment
7:59 pm
that they have got to be a kind of stabilizing state was in fact there will be. so about getting. your medication or all of keeping the peace not only in the sense of keeping the peace as. the protector of civil peace but also keeping the peace between the rival camps in the country. they don't want to see. which will pick up and start for example of those we have seen some people walking. off. government leaders without really. eliminate any sort of. beautifully forcible conflict and that's.
8:00 pm
also usually only has to be this kind of stability. system within the within that he can just have from one. come to the other. with new talks between them i think this is very important and only will will will deepen the success of chris. thank you very much for your analysis and forces fighting for control of libya's capital of launched new air strikes planes belonging to warlord to never have to drop bombs on the town the vines are just south of tripoli public and private property was damaged in the attack while forces loyal to the u.n. backed government targeted positions south of the town is believed to be a base for half those military operations fighting is been going on for more than a week now. more than than one had is live for.
