Army: Brother of Sudan's Bashir not in detention

The opposition Declaration of Forces for Freedom and Change threatened the army with civil disobedience if it does not give in to their demands

The transitional military council now ruling the country has said Bashir will face justice in Sudan and will not be extradited to The Hague, where the International Criminal Court has charged him with war crimes and genocide linked to the Darfur conflict in the early 2000s.

On its Twitter page, state media outlet SUNA reported that three of those injured in the Khartoum shootig were members of the armed forces.

Military leaders have insisted that they should have the ultimate power and that the transitional period should be no more than two years.

The military has said it will not allow "chaos", and the armed forces have used tear gas and force to disperse protesters and remove barricades from the capital's key arteries.

The transitional military council and leaders of opposition groups meanwhile announced on Monday evening that they had agreed on a power structure and governance system for a joint council they formed in late April to solve their disagreements.

Mass protests which drove Bashir from office on April 11 are still being held outside the army headquarters, vowing to force the military council to cede power.

But on Tuesday, following the previous night's violence at the Khartoum sit-in, protesters vented their anger on the streets of capital's twin city Omdurman.

Sudan's military council and opposition groups said they had agreed on Monday to a power structure for the country's transition but have yet to decide how long it will last or the make-up of transitional bodies.

Saturday Night Live turns into a courtroom for Jonas Brothers
This SNL performance is just one of many venues that we're probably going to be seeing from them over the past several months. The brothers sheepishly appeared in court for causing $5 million worth of damages to a vacation rental.

The apparent breakthrough came as Sudan's acting prosecutor general Al-Waleed Sayyed Ahmed said Bashir "and others have been charged for inciting and participating in the killing of demonstrators".

The official death toll is 65.

The area has also witnessed the deployment of troops from the Sudanese army, and the Rapid Support Forces (an affiliate of the Sudanese military), according to eyewitnesses.

The Sudanese Professionals' Association, which leads the opposition alliance, has accused the TMC of expanding its powers as talks over the transition have stalled, threatening a campaign of civil disobedience to up pressure on the military. The demonstrators, however, have remained in the streets, demanding the military hand over to civilian rule.

The protesters had resumed negotiations with the army earlier Monday while also calling for more demonstrations nationwide, including another march to the main sit-in.

"Some unidentified elements who wanted to spoil negotiations between the two sides tried to enter the sit-in. and gunshots were fired that led to the killing of a major from the military police", the military council said.

But the generals pointed to what they call "many reservations" over the alliance's roadmap.
