Sudanese Ask Army to Back Calls for Bashir to Step Down

Thousands of Sudanese protesters have rallied outside the army's headquarters in the capital Khartoum, calling on the military to back their demand for President Omar al-Bashir to step down. The complex also houses the defence ministry and Bashir's official residence. Protest organisers chose April 6 to begin the rally outside the army headquarters to mark the 1985 uprising that toppled the regime of President Jaafar Nimeiri.
