Army and civilians seal power-sharing deal

Sudan’s ruling military council and civilian opposition alliance have signed a landmark power-sharing deal.

The deal was signed by Hemeti and Lt-Gen Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan for the military council, and Ahmed al-Rabie for the Alliance for Freedom and Change umbrella group of pro-democracy protesters.

The prime ministers of Ethiopia and Egypt and the South Sudanese president were among regional leaders attending ceremony.

The agreement ushers in a new governing council, including both civilians and generals, to pave the way towards elections and civilian rule.

Sudan has seen pro-democracy protests and repression since long-time ruler Omar al-Bashir was ousted in April.
