Sudan Renews Ceasefire Pact With Rebels, Lets in Aid

Sudan's new government and major rebel groups have signed a declaration opening the door for further political talks. The Khartoum administration also agreed to let aid into war-torn areas which were cut off from humanitarian groups during the rule of ousted president Omar al-Bashir. The peace talks have been held in Juba, the capital of South Sudan, after South Sudanese President Salva Kiir offered to mediate. On the same day, protesters took to the streets of Khartoum and other Sudanese cities to call for Al-Bashir's party to be disbanded.
