Transitional Military Council suspends talks with protesters for 72 hours urging them to dismantle roadblocks in capital Khartoum, after they broke a deal on de-escalation.
Talks on the protesters' key demand for a civilian-led body to oversee a four-year transition have been deadlocked for days, with the military insisting on holding a majority in any new ruling body.
Officials of Transitional Military Council say they're willing to discuss political future of the country with opposition provided there are no further protests.
The demand to reopen roads came a day after rally leaders suspended talks with the 10-member military council.
Sudanese Professionals' Association (SPA) called for the establishment of a transitional council which would be protected by the armed forces, adding it would exert "all forms of peaceful pressure to achieve the objectives of the revolution".
Chanting "Sudan is rising, the army is rising," crowds of men and women massed outside the complex that also houses Bashir's official residence and the defence ministry, many of them having spent the night there.
One civilian has died during protests in Sudan's Omdurman in what appeared to be the biggest demonstration in months of protest against President Omar al Bashir's 30-year rule.

Since mid-December, the country has been rocked by popular protests where demonstrators seek President al Bashir’s resignation over his apparent failure to remedy the country’s chronic economic woes.
The continuing protests against his government and a loss of support in parliament have left the Sudanese president vulnerable. But almost everyone agrees he won’t willingly step down.
The demonstrations are the biggest in several years against Bashir's 29-year rule, with protesters enraged over inflation, shortages of basic goods and a cash crisis.
