12:01 am
40 days since a crackdown by security forces they want an independent investigation into the killing of more than $100.00 protesters on june the 3rd and they're also demanding a civilian led government a political transition agreement between sudan's military gente and a pro-democracy coalition is there to be signed later on saturday the deal sets up a joint sovereign council that will govern for about 3 years until elections are held but here's a reminder of the significant events so far after weeks of protests against his rule the military removed president omar and bashir in a coup on april the 11th the generals then set up a transitional council while the mass sit in continued outside the army headquarters protest leaders held talks with the john top they agreed on a 3 year transitional period to democracy but talk soon broke down over who would lead the joint transitional government the military wanted a soldier to be in charge protesters demanded it be led by civilians on june the 3rd security forces raided the protest camp. outside the army headquarters killing
12:02 am
more than 100 people and injuring many more all contact between the 2 sides was shut down and talks finally resumed on july the 3rd and within days they agreed to set up a council that'll govern for about 3 years while elections are organized leadership of this council will switch between the military and civilians morgan is monitoring developments from over the border in ethiopia's capital addis ababa we are hearing reports of protests ensued on him what are you hearing and how widespread are these protests. well there in the sudanese professionals association the body that has been spearheading calls for protests since december they're the ones who initiated this protest today the protests that marks 40 days since june 3rd now that day has become very infamous because of the number of people killed and the way the security forces attacked the monthlong pro-democracy
12:03 am
sit in in front of the army headquarters we've spoken to some protesters in hospital and they're saying that the protests have been largely peaceful but we've also spoken to others because it is a nationwide protest so some of them are reporting that the security forces are using tear gas to try to disperse them to try to put an end to this march that started at around 1 o'clock local time and is still ongoing so it's been going on for more than 3 hours now they're saying that security forces are now using tear gas they're trying to disperse the protesters but they're saying that they will continue with their demand for just as they want the accountability for their for the deaths and the killings of their fellow protesters they do not believe that the military council which will be leading the transitional period for the 1st 21 months will be holding independent investigation because they see that those who attacked them at the sit in are the security forces and the videos show that security forces were the one that opened fire so they're saying that those investigations will not be free will not be fair and will be biased so they want an independent investigation into who killed the protesters and why did the same time

12:05 am
into the political agreement the words and the specifics they don't want any loopholes that could literally become an obstacle in terms of trying to implement that transitional agreement and trying to hand over power from a military government to civilian government so they're saying that the wording is in the constitution declination which will be the constitution guiding the government during the transition period and the wording in the political agreement between the 2 sides have to be very specific have to be carefully worded so that nothing is later misinterpreted and that the transition period go smoothly ok have a morgan thank you. plenty more ahead on the news hour including u.s. politicians take action to stop arms sales to saudi arabia and stop the killing in yemen. plus we'll have the latest. when the cricket world cup in front of their home fans at lord's. coming up.
