Sudan’s Military Council Says Perpetrators In Sit-In Attack Arrested

KHARTOUM, Sudan, Deputy Chairman of Sudan's Transitional Military Council (TMC), Mohamed Hamdan Daqlu, said, armed perpetrators that attacked and killed protesters in Khartoum on Monday, have been arrested.

The perpetrators who committed Monday's massacre have been arrested, with judicial confession, and they will be shown on TV satellite channels within today or tomorrow, Daqlu told native administration leaders.

Anyone who committed a crime in Sudan would be punished, he said, reiterating the importance of continuing the dialogue to reach a final deal that ends the political crisis in the country.

Shortly after the ruling TMC and opposition forces reached a breakthrough agreement on Monday, on the transitional authority to run the country, several gunmen dressed in uniform attacked protesters at a sit-in area in Khartoum, killing six protesters and an army officer, and injuring more than a hundred others.

The TMC, chaired by Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan, is tasked with running the country, following the ouster of former President, Omar al-Bashir.
