5:02 pm
and their properties and properties of the state and we will deal with this firmly and in accordance with the law this is what we wanted to clarify to the sudanese people we did not want to add insult to injury. the army's warning comes after talks with the opposition hit a snag the two sides have agreed to form a new body to run the country until the next elections the army wants a majority in the transitional body the young activists behind the mass protest movement the toppled president on battle bashir worry the military is buying time to prevent a civilian takeover. but despite its repeated warning to use force against the protesters the army has a fall of voided an isolation that's mike lee to an confrontation and. we have made many concessions for the sake of protecting our nation and preventing scenarios similar to what happened in neighboring countries we want to talk to end

5:04 pm
today nobody really knows what's going to happen because of those statements strong statements today by the head of the the deputy head of the military council and also because of the me good results of the negotiations yesterday when they came out from that meeting without clear agreements only statements. and counter statements about what was discussed we know that only two points have been agreed on so far or old in points in place upon the creation of a joint military council and the writing of a constitutional declaration every other detail is just kind of being discussed as you know that the them is in the details they have not agreed on the membership of the two sides how many members of each side they have not agreed on how many years the transition should take they have not agreed on any other specifics and the protesters are asking for drastically for those including judiciary reforms
5:05 pm
including getting rid of even the entire security apparatus because they think that it is system functioning on behalf of the former regime of bashir today the military council as we all have heard has given those the statements in which he accused the protesters of being lacking seriousness about the negotiations and about finding a solution accusing them of lying to their base about what's going on accusing them of block in public roads the protesters of disrupting public or that and saying that the military is patients is running out in terms of what should be done to preserve law and order those statements have been received with a lot of anger among the protesters they took it as a message and hints that the military is about to take some. action to disrupt the city and of course the military said they're not intending to disrupt the sitting
5:06 pm
but the protesters think that removing the roadblocks is the best step to words ending the sit in and the protesters their leaders in particular they think that the only strength they have in around the negotiation table is that people here in the city and on the streets of khartoum they think that said they people go home no single concession will be given to them by the military and they say they don't trust the military to talk about the long history of dictator military dictatorship in sudan and they say they see signs that history is repeating itself and that the military council is not intending to cede power to civilians all right mamma dalai for us and current him mohamed thank you. a protester censored and have reinforced barricades after organizers accused the military of attempting to break their said it ahmed joe has more for us from khartoum there was a confrontation all tied to sudanese military headquarters protesters attacking that demand for
