Leaders of Sudanese protesters call for 'a million' people to gather for a rally demanding a handover of power to a civil government.
Egypt and representatives from several other African nations agreed on "the need for more time" for Sudanese authorities and political actors "to implement peaceful, organised and democratic transition measures," Egyptian presidency said.
The shake-up at the top comes as Sudanese civilians protest against the army rulers who took control after toppling president Omar al Bashir.
The government was reopening the country’s eastern border with Eritrea, said Sudanese President Omar al Bashir. It was closed in early January, 2018.
