TEHRAN, Apr 19 - Sudanese protest organizers say they will announce an interim ruling council they want to see take over from the military that ousted President Omar al-Bashir after months of street protests against him.

Sudanese protest organizers to announce interim councilTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The Sudanese Professional Association, which has been behind the four months of protests against al-Bashir, released a statement on Friday saying they will announce the makeup of a "civilian presidential council" at a press conference in Khartoum on Sunday.

The Sudanese military ousted al-Bashir last week and set up a military council to run the country for a maximum of two years.

The protesters fear the army, dominated by al-Bashir appointees, will cling to power or select one of its own to succeed him.

The demonstrators are pressing on with their sit-in outside the military headquarters in Khartoum.
