Sudan Military Says New Government Will Be Civilian-Led

Sudan's military council said Friday it will  relinquish power  as soon as civilians form a new government.

The council has been running the country since Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir was forced out of office Thursday in a military coup.  Thousands celebrated in the streets following al-Bashir's removal.  Sudan's Vice President, who is also the country's Defense Minister, says Bashir's government has been dissolved and the constitution has been suspended.

He said the military council will oversee the transition to the new government.

But protesters reiterated their demand Friday that power be handed to a civilian transitional government.   Bashir's ouster comes after months of mass protests against him.

During his reign, Bashir faced accusations of genocide and war crimes, but was never brought to justice.

The International Criminal Court has issued two warrants for him, but the Defense Minister said the former leader will be prosecuted in Sudan and will not be handed over.
