Activists Say Sudan's Military Attempted to Break up Sit-in

CAIRO (AP) — Organizers behind Sudanese anti-government protests say the military has attempted to break up their sit-in but backed off. There were no clashes and no one was hurt.

Footage circulating online shows hundreds of troops outside the military headquarters in Khartoum on Monday. An officer is heard saying they came to "clean" the area.

Some protesters then sit down in front of the soldiers who back off.

Sudan's military last week ousted longtime President Omar al-Bashir, saying it was responding to demands of the people.

A military council that took over promised on Sunday would not forcefully break up the sit-in.

The Sudanese Professionals Association, which is behind the protests, is urging people to head to the sit-in and defend it from any attempts by the military to disperse the demonstrators.
