Protest leaders in Sudan have said they have broken off contact with the ruling military council that replaced ousted leader Omar al-Bashir.
They accused it of being composed of “remnants” of Mr Bashir’s regime.
Thousands of protesters have gathered outside army HQ in Khartoum for a meeting to announce a civilian council they now want to take power.
The military says it is committed to handing over power and will consider a joint military-civilian council.
