Sudanese on the streets again, urging judicial reforms
Thousands of Sudanese have rallied on the streets of the capital, Khartoum, demanding the sacking of the judiciary chief and the general prosecutor over their alleged ties to ousted autocrat Omar al-Bashir's government.

The protesters waved Sudanese flags and marched to the presidential palace Thursday, now the seat of the joint civilian-military sovereign council formed last month as part of a power-sharing deal between pro-democracy protesters and the generals who took over after al-Bashir was ousted in April.

The council is to rule, along with a Cabinet and a legislative body, for more than three years, after which elections will be held.

Protest leader Ahmed Rabie of the Sudanese Professionals Association criticized lacking reforms in the judiciary and said they "should be a top priority for the transitional period."
