Thousands demonstrated in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, on Saturday, demanding the dismissal of the country’s transitional government. Many protesters demanded that the army take power in the country.

During the evening, demonstrators set up tents outside the presidential palace.

Sudan has been ruled since 2019, when hardline President Omar al-Bashir was ousted after widespread protests, by a transitional government consisting of a civilian-military council and a civilian government.

Saturday’s demonstrations were organized by a splinter group from the coalition that led the protests against al-Bashir. However, opponents say the protest was carried out by the army and security forces, with the participation of former loyalists.

Tensions between civilians and the military in the transitional government have risen since Sudanese authorities said they had halted a coup attempt in September. According to a number of government officials, al-Bashir was behind the attack.

Just over two weeks ago, thousands of people demonstrated in favor of a civilian government.
