Sudan’s president Omar al Bashir has reportedly stepped down following an uprising and consultations are under way to establish a transitional military council.

The minister of production and economic resources in North Darfur Adel Mahjoub Hussein told Dubai-based Al Hadath TV: “There are consultations to form a military council to take over power after President Bashir stepped down”.

It comes after Sudan’s state TV said on Thursday that the military would make an “important” announcement as thousands of protesters, including women carrying their children, were seen marching toward the military headquarters in the capital Khartoum.
