The protestors in Sudan on Monday has demanded to end the ruling military council over the country and to replace by a civilian one with representatives from the army.

"We want the military council to be dissolved and be replaced by a civilian council having representatives of the army," Mohamed Naji, a senior leader of the Sudanese Professionals Association, told reporters.

Though the military leaders had announced earlier that they will not extradite ousted president Omar al-Bashir, still the protests continued to demand Bashir should be brought to justice.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) issued two arrest warrants against Bashir accusing him of organising war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sudan's Dafur region between 2003 and 2008.
