Sudanese protesters to escalate rallies, no longer recognise military council

KHARTOUM, April 21 (Reuters) - Sudanese protest leaders on Sunday vowed to escalate demonstrations to confront the country’s military rulers, as part of a widening campaign to push for the transfer of power to civilians.

Addressing a rally outside the Defence Ministry in central Khartoum, a protest leader said that demonstrators no longer recognised the Transitional Military Council that assumed power after the ousting of President Omar al-Bashir last week.
