"Rather more enthusiastic than Sudan that it was about to become the third out of state to agree to normalize relations with Israel in a matter of months. Mr. Trump made the announcement at the White House some Friday shortly after rescinding Sudan's listing as a state sponsor of terrorism. But since then, Sudan's foreign minister has said that any deal could any go ahead with the approval of what at the moment is a non existent Legislative council.

Flooding leaves South Sudan facing threat of ‘catastrophic’ hunger levels
"Catastrophic flooding and rising food and health costs in Sudan have driven up the number of people in need the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs or Archer said on Friday authorities declared a three-month state of emergency in early September after the worst flooding in thirty years to date more than eight. Hundred and sixty thousand people have had houses destroyed or damaged and more than one hundred, twenty died hundreds of schools and thousands of health facilities have also been affected especially in North Darfur, Khartoum for and Sana. The response by agencies and partners has reached more than four hundred thousand people so far which shelter and essential items for more than one hundred and. Eighty, thousand flood-affected refugees and around one point nine million internally displaced people and communities amid growing needs searching inflation reaching nearly one hundred and seventy percent in has caused a shortage of basic commodities and increase prices of some locally sourced supplies by up to four hundred percent. Here's ultra spokesperson Jens Locker in some cases by the time the procurement process finalized the.

Sudan declares state of emergency over deadly floods
"Sudan has declared a three month state of emergency after unusually heavy seasonal rains that have led to flooding and loss of life and left tens of thousands of people homeless. Tenaga Chip Coto is deputy director of the UN's humanitarian agency Gauche in the Sudanese capital Khartoum. They're flooding has affected over half a million people and then houses that have been totally partially damaged or collapse was over 100,000. So you can you can tell this quite big is affecting the whole country. But it hasn't to say this is the flood period for her, too, But they say it has been way above the norm. So that's why I'm having this impact currently, and it's the flooding caused by hours of torrential rain or or the flooding of the river Nile. It's both. It's both. So if you look at the western parts of the country that's been affected is more your your flash flooding and you get rain's coming incident but also upstream and when the action for blue now is utopia so intimate, so Pia impacting us quite a lot. AM River Banks being briefed, for instance, the Luminal midst the wet now, which is in factual, that area is overflowing and affecting a large area in hunting itself. And those people who have lost their homes, both local residents, and of course, I would imagine lots of refugees and internally displaced people who've lost their shelter. What provisions is being made for them. So before the rains is mentioned, we have joined season so every year we prepared beforehand we preposition our stocks in strategic areas. So areas where you have your displaced people. As you know, Sudan is about more troubling people at this place because ofthe conflict we have drifted. Jesus. Well, bumping one million refugees in Sudan is well and also in certain areas where we know that flood in the regular basis. So the stocks have them The only challenge you having these days that the rains have been way more. Then we expected so as a result, this talk that we had preposition now running law. We all scores a second. And imagine the health system mistress as well. When you have your reins, people need your your medical medical support, but also looking at issues around your your cholera. When there's rain get cholera. You also have your malaria. Making sure people get water to drink is also a big issue in some areas that are flooded. Schools have been flooded and Children to go back to school. So there are a lot of things that are going on most people who are affected along the river. Now they're seeking shelter with strangers, relatives and then is only the ones that do not money to go to friend's urges, or we're friends relate to that as well. Those are the ones that have been sheltered, using tense or you know the concrete buildings. Is there? Um, any silver lining to this particular dark cloud all the rains welcoming away after a period all the drought. The rain's always always bring in good myself. Agriculture. And also for animals. It means that I wasn't able to have grazing land. But right now we don't know what's more. Is it away the stage where it has caused a lot of damage for the compliments because there are some crops that underwater so The impact is yet to assist. As you can imagine. The focus right now is to measure that lives are saved. But that said, I think this is all happened in a country where the economy is that performing too well. It's been in decline for quite a while. We have coffee like any other country. There's competition in the cases of over there around 13,000 cases and slept over 800. Kids were also having a not breaking polio, so a lot of things that are going on and this is adding a layer off neat. We have not seen the end of the rings, so we expect more flooding for the next two or three weeks. Soldiers stop point is really required.

NFL plans full season, starting on time
"The big news yesterday in the NFL in terms of what happens going forward should the schedule B. as it's supposed to be about you again they say it's going to they're offering the promise never full regular season full post season the vote happened yesterday to basically that it was a rubber stamp as we was gonna happen to allow the two more playoff record about your team plans to use a seven seed in each conference which means they'll be three games a wildcard Saturday three games while card Sunday including one on Nickelodeon by the way summer Sanders this text me back she's all in team summer will get you in the mood for that game absolute done but then the question becomes is that the most significant change what happened yesterday or is what happens in the regular season the more significant thing because by adding that extra wild card they've eliminated the two seed and the benefits that go with it because now only one team gets the bite each conference the number one seed and remember Kansas city got a by by being the two seed last year and they got to host the AFC champs of game because the ravens lost right to the Tennessee Titans so in your opinion what's going to be more impactful the idea of a seven seed and maybe them find a way to get to the Super Bowl which hasn't happened since Super Bowl forty seven or the flight to make sure you hold that number one seed down the stretch without question extra team in the playoffs for me extra team in the playoffs because we see wild card teams win the Superbowl it can happen just get in you can't win the Super Bowl if you're not the playoffs yeah I I think it's it's much more likely on the other outlook while Khartoum island wild card teams as the league as presently constructed right hand women anymore I think when we the last time we saw it was really back before the new CBA taking it back in two thousand eleven two thousand twelve when the effects really started to seep in I don't think with the current constraints teams constructed like that having to deal with this can win a super walk I'm with you on this one so again well greeted they will fight tomorrow yes I am a hundred percent on this because not only that but it make sure that you have meaningful games played unless you have a four game lead right right right it does I know he's lost all seventeen games this season and eighteen weeks next year with a seventeen game season because again the seventeenth game with the new CBA won't start till twenty twenty one C. right price all have a regular sixteen game regular seasons over seventeen weeks the amount of such significant football that's going to be played down the stretch to make sure you hold on to that number one seed I think it's going to be buying a whack and it's still one of the great things that last week when you have all those division games in there but to me as I I again I speaking from a former player there is way more teams involved now they could have a chance to get into the playoffs and I'm all
Resolving Israel-Palestinian conflict, 'key to sustainable peace' in the Middle East
"Nineteen sixty seven. Arab states gathered in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum to issue what became known as the three knows no no recognition of Israel. No peace with Israel and no negotiations with Israel. Well this week these rarely prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu met that Sudan's leader to discuss normalization between the two states. So what's happened well to discuss what this means joined by. Alison Kaplan SOMMA. His journalist for Haret's a very warm welcome back to monocle twenty four. Listen could you just briefly. Explain the background to this story. And the circumstances of the three knows well a few the days ago. It was announced that Prime Minister Netanyahu was going to go to Uganda and it was very mysterious. What the what? The circumstances were were around it and it turned out that the purpose of the visit was to meet with the chief of Sudan's Sovereignty Council Abdel Fattah El Brand and and they met and they agreed to start normalising normalizing ties between Uganda and Israel. And this is sort of the continuing eight of a process that seems to be back door coordination between the United States and Israel a lot of countries like Sudan African countries entries who have had very very closed attitudes towards the state of Israel have have realized that probably the key to getting taken the terror lists and being put in the good graces of the United States is through Jerusalem and therefore we've seen sort of a pattern of warming of ties between some of of these regimes including Chad for example which Netanyahu visited last year and Kind of understanding that as they move closer start towards Reconciliation with with Israel that they'll They'll get better treatment from the United States. At least that's that's the way it's interpreted on the side the The African and Asian countries that are that are moving towards warmer relations with Israel after decades of being closed towards that. So is that the reason why this is all happening now. Now the Sudan and Chad making overtures over receiving overtures from Israel simply so that they can get benefits from the United States. I'm do you know so. That's sort of the assumption obviously. Nobody's nobody's saying that out loud by the way he was in Uganda. Where this meeting with the chief of Of the Sudan Council that took place and at the same time it was announced that Uganda had agreed. We'll see if it happens if it had agreed to move. Its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. which which is another Another pattern of a move. That is that is An African country trying to to move closer to the United States via via Israel. But Yes the signs of cooperation and normalization appear to be coming from that place and of course the motivation on the Israeli side. Benjamin Netanyahu yeah was. He wants to show as many diplomatic accomplishments as possible before he heads towards elections which are in less than four weeks. Woods astonishing those. The likes of Sudan's ends information. Minister said that he had absolutely no information about the visit to Uganda. Why was this extensively kept quite secret? I think for both political and security reasons after the meeting took place the head of the Pilo Monitoring Committee part of the Palestinian Authority side Erakat said we aggressively condemn the meeting between the Sudanese president and a Tony'll and called it a stab in the back of the Palestinian nation in and deviation from the Arab consensus and that the timing is helpful to the trump administration and Netanyahu just as new peace plan was rolled out And according to Erekat eradicated the Palestinian issue by means of attacking the Al Aqsa Mosque and other holy places in Jerusalem. So these condemnations came after after the meeting and I think the reason it was kept so quiet and hush hush is so that these kind of condemnations wouldn't create political pressure that might prevent it from happening in the first place. You mentioned that. The Palestinians have objected fiercely to this decision. Will this move They've been trying to Effectively really drum up support from Arab nations and the Arab League including Sudan. This does not bode well for them. Does it. It doesn't what is you know. It's part of a pattern since the roll out of this peace plan which nobody is taking particularly seriously in terms of The likelihood that it will succeed but everyone on the the On the Palestinian side you know internationally views as a possible green light for Israel to to move ahead with With with annexation the Geo political calculation that everyone is assuming in the fact that many of the Arab nations are keeping rather quiet on the subject. Despite the Arab League's condemnation of the plan is simple calculation that much of the Sunni Arab world feels it needs the support of the United States and tacitly Israel to confront Iran and that that is currently much more important to it in a bigger priority than standing up for for the Palestinian cause. I Listen Kaplan summer. Journalists for Harris. Thank you very much indeed for joining US own monocle. Twenty four in the moment on today's globalist.

Sudanese court sentences 29 security forces to death for torturing, killing a detained protester in country's uprising
"For the first time members of the Sudanese security forces have been brought to court and found guilty of murder for the killing of a protest who took part in the movement that toppled the former dictator alma about Shia twenty nine security agents have been sentenced to death for torturing to death meant of fat I was with us on Africa and to to will Ross here in the news studio tell us about our ads our yes this case some really caught the attention of the whole the whole country because his death sort of gave new momentum to the whole protest movement basically he had been to this and T. Omar al Bashir protest in the east of the country he was then arrested at his home by security agents and was kept in custody and what did it turns out that he was very very badly tortured that to such an extent that he died from his injuries and at the time the police said he had died from poisoning but a stating quarry then found that he had died as the result of torture and that the course in on demand that the twin city of Khartoum just a few hours ago the large crowd out outside that celebrated when the death sentences were handed down an interesting ends to that where the the brother of the victim was lost by the judge would you like to pardon them and he said no the sentences should be carried out this was for one death there are many more deaths on the that will cost when the army was trying to control these protests that's right it's it's not clear exactly how many people died groups like Amnesty International believe well over a hundred and seventy people died during those months of protests but the protest movement itself things over two hundred and fifty were killed many of them in June outside the army had courses in Khartoum there a as a several sort of better known cases including one where a doctor was was shot right outside his home at point blank range in that case is continuing and I think there's several other high profile ones will continue but I think it's highly unlikely that you know we're gonna see many many more cases like this in the courts but it is clear that from the the large crowd outside the court that there is a real hunger for justice as people look back over the last year and they look at all these people that died and the fact that that has been so little justice and of course over the years when president Omar al Bashir was in power there was never anything like this going on with security agents would be held to
Top UN official in Mauritania dispels misconceptions over slavery, womens rights
"Supporting Mauritania's efforts to protect eastern border from jihadists and other destabilizing elements is just one aspect of the work in this quiet corner of North Africa. That's according to U N Resident Coordinator for Mauritania Anthony or Hemming Amar who oversees the organization's operations nations to help the country realise sustainable development economic growth and other goals. Mr Obama was in New York recently and spoke to Dan. Penn about UN assistance in Mauritania. And the need to clear the air over negative reports about slavery and gender equality. Most people don't hear much about Morton. Yeah of course. It's quiet and sometimes when we hear about more tedious usually mostly negative slavery. Those kinds of things. There are some transformative initiatives going on in the country which needs to be understood and also supported. And does this way you went comes in and before we begin maybe you can tell us a resin coordinator Benita. What exactly is that? What do you do there well us? The title indicates We coordinate the UN or personnel support to the country and We D- reforms. We also I also secretary general so we do take on issues that we didn't take on board previously like some of the political issues but the main focus is to make sure that the UN programming response today as DVD's in pefect alarming to support the government's priorities. Thank you very much. And you've mentioned the SDG's the sustainable development goals what are some of the major ones that Mauritania is working on. Mauritania is a very big country about one million square kilometers. Four point four million people. It's straddles the senator Gary of Abass. In all the way to the Suhel to the desert in the north there are four men issues I think that President Tool Martinez Development. In which you entrust to support one of them's the the whole security issue Martinis the Western Frontier Molly. So the jihadism terrorism We do provide support to make sure that at least Martinez offset bulwark to what is happening. And also to be able to influence positively. What is happening on this border The second bit is the holes social sector support programs that we bring to bear education health. National reconciliation those kinds of things. And then to Ed category is the government support and four elementary economics Davidge vacation Growth and obviously is equal distribution for every Mauritanian to also benefit from economic growth. I usually also talk about environment back. It's in a way President and all the foyer is that I mentioned The economic base is on the environment agriculture extract to use those things but yes environment is also a very important aspect of the UN support you mentioned the UN helping Mauritania to sort of be a bulwark against any sort of. I guess she had a store extremist elements. I guess coming from Mali or other parts of the Suhel is the country impacted as it is now by any terrorist activities No the last in fact terrorist incident. A country country is more than ten years old but since then the government actually adopted some what I call strategic interventions to make sure that doesn't happen again one of them is a decentralisation program does the president speaks about it most of the time that you know countries in that part of Africa have to bring seven assist population and to make depletion feel like they belong they have access to the administration dot com. Talk to people so education. Walter those kinds of things. You know Decentralized government systems and that is working obviously also beefed up security. If you hope you have on your student board which is under CVS security threats than you have to do something so they've also restarted the army. Let me to be able to respond to this kind of threats. And the ad I emphasise million economic development Mauritania depends on agriculture pastoralism.

It's a quiet place we don't hear too much about it and you've mentioned in the past. It was about negative things. Maybe we can talk about but some of those in the steps of the country has taken or is taking together with the support of the UN in overcoming and continuing that progress on Fox walks.

Eddie have laws against slavery But some of them it has get laws against livery and it has tribe NAS which track kisses that comes to his attention and that sort of thing so slavery something which is supported by state or institutions is not the case but obviously in in some of the media it's slavery pervades. What really is the issue in the country moment is the sequester slavery and you could could be free? But if you're comical independent on the person who used to own you of your sleep yongle five and so on and so forth and and so the government does acknowledges that There are some of these issues and the present government basically costs four.

There are certain things which will be happening and I saluted corners of the country. I think the. US government does report on slavery and trafficking some of these issues and Martinez. Three BIS scully. meaning that there are a lot of things to do that. I think the government is governed side of that. And it's doing what it can to make sure that it's in the good books good neighborliness with Yadda companies have conform to international norms. critise and everything that it has signed onto of course he one of the important areas for the UN in particular for the secretary general is gender equality and how is the country Fairing in that respect Dr West to go I think generally in Africa and I would even say generally around the world agenda qualities issue So when you have on Islamic republic which also fuses out say courtrai traditions. What some of the normative things that are required because as part of your body that you win you're allowed that it takes a little more time together but that being said I think The government US keen on making sure that they're supposed division Mauritania's hard women Republic in the sixties and so the question becomes really continuing that trend and making sure that you have woman in in good positions women who come to role models and and also to work on transforming also. I would say some of the mindsets that people do not just accept what Khartoum tradition sees so month's Roland also to compete in solve the modern spaces. It's happening it's happening very slowly. You went suppose that at advocacy or programs. We tried to do that. Also intensify recruitments We try to do that. Intensify intentioned programs in terms of talking to young female outdoors at schools a To let them understand what is available in the world. There is no law in Mauritania which prescribes women from ascribing to be anything including being the president. So it's just a metro for encouraging open indoors and providing them the avenues that will allow them to see that it can seize opportunities and just conform to traditional and Cortra- mindsets.

But first, I want to ask you as an American when this was going on. We would hear things in the news President Clinton. It seems to me. Bears. A lot of blame for his lack of leadership in this, and he gave what I thought to be kind of a mealy mouth. Gee, I wish we had done more. Isn't it possible that the United States could have done much more? Very much more. They stick to the statistics as if they United States not withdrawn its troops from Wanda and if they end not follow what deed. The killing would have been less than a couple of hundred thousand people because they s through Beijing because of the killing of the ten beige sold. Yeah. As end the Clinton administration also did this because I before most people don't remember it while the killing of the soldiers in, in Somalia day, but I call down something, the killing of nineteen soldiers in a in Somalia, so the FIA of engaging many countries. Dia gain, I think caused the to withdraw nor to remain about because it was through the Saudi as other countries, they end took Muslim soldiers out, and that gave the militia opportunity to cure without stopping. So yes, indeed, they, you as pave the way for other nations to his Saudi as which enable the key. Dealers. They. Tool many Shia to kill more people. So I confess that because of this, I want to hate President Clinton and I have to repent of that. And to forgive him. It's very difficult. But if you and your people can do what you've done, I think, that many people listening, we have to think about whom we need to forgive. It doesn't mean what they did was an evil because it was evil. We have to forgive so tell us about the Sudan. How did you become involved in the Sudan? I'm unfamiliar with the political situation. There. They one ks of. Playboys in Sweden. We say has been is located in the region, and so even speak. To speak up one, they cleaned on. Today is that even what happen to Wanda is happening? Even in Congo is happening in social, Don has happened in Sudan, and maybe remember the genocide in fool, and George Bush, one who's pushing to pro to the president of Sudan, by sheer on the international criminal court because of the killing of the people in the fruit.

When you say the Lord said, I believe, in these kinds of things, which makes me ask specific questions, does the Lord, speak to you in a voice, or was it simply a deeper knowing how did the Lord speak to you? When he told you this. When you have been working and trusting the Lord and being in his twin that went over to in sometimes Datta, motto fluff death. You begin to learn to how speaks to you. That doesn't speak to you the same time all the time. This basic moment, I had prayed, I was afraid, of course. I'm I had told my family and my friends to pray because either I'll be kept in jail. They be tortured, and lift. I was afraid, sorry was praying for that morning that given me grace and trans and bowed boldness to talk to him. And then I had voice literally on, in my heart saying, so thin boned do what you plant dual win to him ask him about his Fundy poke to him about his to you. You love him. He's me and then how can pray for him. Does all your mission this morning all three months before I had to put all my speech, all that he's so forth. So it was a voice in my heart.

And this moment, actually, the guy showed up with his bodyguards, so he came I met him before. But this time to meet him. And so when he's down and we and I deem how he's doing and asked him. Hey Tammy, how's your family doing? He was shocked. Fussy was angry for a moment. And he said, who are you trusting me about my family? About him. I don't even the people who work for me. I told him I am a funny month. I told him a pot from Jesus. The second book for my life is my wife and my kids. And so I'm asking you because I know if you mon- you I can, we have many.

"It's two twenty one I'm Carol hills. This is the world in Sudan, today. An attempt to mediate the deadly standoff between military rulers and pro democracy. Protesters Ethiopia's prime minister held separate talks with the two sides, just days after soldiers stormed, a protest camp in the capital cartoon the protesters say one hundred thirteen people were killed. The government put the toll at sixty one people, including three security personnel. Either way, it was the worst violence in the city since President, Omar al-bashir was ousted earlier this year yesterday. Khartoum resident Dalia up Muneem describe to us what she was seeing. The roads are empty we could see members of the Jeonju we'd roaming the streets in my neighborhood in my area. They were reports of huge clashes between protestors at the John, Joey. Forces or the rapid deployment forces, they're heavily heavily armed some of them looked like they have rocket launchers. You heard domineering they're referred to, John, Joey, that's the same militia that brought violence and mayhem to the western Sudanese province of Darfur more than a decade ago, the ones that move on foot. They carry whips and they carry so trenches, these sticks they're fitted with, like, electrical pods. So when they hit you with it, you get electrocuted. These are state of the art weapons that this force, this the show of thugs is using and has been using on Dr fuller and it's now turned, and they're using it on us in the capital, a former Jonjo Joey later known as Hetty now. Lease the paramilitary rapid support forces in Khartoum and scholar. Eric Reeves says Hamady is working from the same playbook. Now, meditate was active. In the John, Joey, the name for the Arab militia forces in Darfur. It's so the ghastly violence, Dr have been transported to the streets of Khartoum, not just of killings of rapes out deliberate humiliation of men before their children, and wives. All sorts of things that were common Dr for. But we're Marsh overlooked now. They can't be overlooked Darfur has come to Khartoum and the consequences are the international community of earning. It's on is for the last ten years from what's going on in Darfur. That's come home to roost in a very serious way. Is it your sense at this point that the transitional military council in Sudan is supporting the rapid support forces, and whatever they do, or is there any indication that the rapid support forces are kind of going rogue and doing whatever they want. Well, they certainly are doing whatever they want. There have been many in the regular force. The Sudan armed forces who've been appalled by the rabbit support forces for a long time. The Sudan armed forces is trained of their discipline. There's officer hierarchy and what I hear continually from sources in Khartoum and elsewhere is that there's tremendous dissatisfaction, especially in the middle right junior ranks the majors colonels lieutenants, these would be the elements, who would stand up to the rapid support forces, and they would have superior firepower. Now, we're starting to hear whispers of a possible civil war, who would the sides be, and who would support them with a civil war in debate between the rapid support forces and those elements of the Sudan, armed forces who are determined that Sudan, will not be controlled by rabid militiamen. The African Union has a spended sedans membership. What are other regional powers doing? And what is the US doing? The US is doing nearly enough in part because it's unstrained by President Trump's support for Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. These are Slavic dictatorships and have no interest in having incident. A democratically led government that has a respect for human rights, civil rights, and free press, but the international community, especially the European Union has a great deal at stake here, the European Union has funded efforts through the al-bashir regime to staunch the flow of African migration to the European continent. Well, one thing I can assure you is that if there is civil warrants, Dan, there will be a flood of Sydney's migrants to the European continent. It will be very bloody very nasty and could be quite protracted. So what is the union doing what, what standards are taking so far? The European Union has been big on words. Condemnation, urgings sympathies, and so on. But they've not made it clear how they want to bring pressure to bear on the presidential military council. We must hope that there are still some chance that the generals, the Sudan, armed forces generals will see the disaster that, Mattie represents for the country, and we'll reign him in who benefits from an unstable Sudan. Nobody sedan borders. A lot of countries that have internal problems of their own era, fritter, Chad, Libya, south Sudan. This is a pivotal country in northeastern Africa and it stretches from the Mediterranean to the equator practically. This is a region could implode with all out civil war, civil war that's been made much more likely by the refusal of the international community don't recognize what was represented by the uprising that began on December nineteenth of last year. We're talking about something that's approaching half the year. Indirection Eric, what are you hearing from the people you're in touch with incident? They are desperate, desperate that their story be heard by the world, and they say had constantly what we want is freedom peace and Justice. And they've been resolutely nonviolent. They've done everything they can to abide by what you might call the norms of a democratic non-violent push for a true civilian governments in this country that they have not been supported more vigorously. It's really a shame on the world and it's going to backfire because the absence of support as less than Merrill facing a kind of mad dog militia force on army that seems paralyzed, and we could have averted this.

It's a specific parliamentary segment with was regularized as positive the food is that used to be an out of control Malaysia, in die for the ginger Wedeman issues, the rapid support forces. And, and that's what's scaring people. Is that this isn't even a regular fools, that's taken control of the town? This means the military's fracturing. I mean, we should say all this happened after protesters demanded the ouster of President Omar Al Beshir. The military is now in charge of Sudan. But what you're describing is that there is no cohesive military, either absolutely the military as a token is in charge, the head of the military council is a general, but the, the second income on head of these forces the rapid support forces everyone I've spoken to on the ground says those are the people that are on the streets all the videos that we've been sent by I witnesses from the citizens show that was rob. Support for God's that charge the sin, and it's incredibly chilling because this is a militia that was accused of war crimes that Ford into have them control the ground in the couple of Sudan is very scary for people right now. We know if the protest camp has now completely dispersed are people still there. People are still that on, and people are still very defiant. I think that's really the only way you can use so people who spent the last month fostering during Ramadan in extremes of heat. And they now say that we will not step down. We will not stand back until this military council has been deposed. Well, now the military is saying, we're gonna stall, these negotiations any agreement that we had settled is off. But we're going to hold elections within nine months is not good news for the protesters. It is that take it is good news. But the is it's not because the only infrastructure that remains intact is the infrastructure of the full Malaysia. In the former ruling policy. It's, it's difficult to see how in a situation where people fearing for their lives, you can put together a cohesive electoral campaign, even though the council says that they will allow observers in this is a miniature council that is blocking journalists that has suspended. I'll Jazirah that has suspended other journalists from doing their work. So it's there's a load of disbelief that they will allow observers to carry out that, that job. Meanwhile, they will just continue to, to sit in to protest to, to demand democratic reforms, even if they are unlikely. To resist. That's hearing that so much blood has been spilled. So many lives have been lost to turn back now is unthinkable, too. Many of those people were speaking to on the ground. Wrightson CNN's, Numa elbow gear. She is senior international.

"Cake. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin in Washington DC, and I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. Tensions in Sudan, are flaring. As thousands of protesters, refusing to break up a sit in outside the military headquarters in the capital Khartoum. Pro democracy. Activists have camped out there for weeks to Manding. The ruling military council handover power to a civilian government. These protests have ramped up despite Sudan's longtime leader, Omar al-bashir being ousted in a military coup weeks ago, NPR's ADA Peralta has been out there with the protesters and joins us and eight or these protesters have incredibly serious demands for the future of their country. It sounds festive out there though, it does. I mean, if you remember Occupy Wall street, it feels kind of like that. And it feels kind of like that in a mix of music festival and protesters here have surrounded the military headquarters, and they've set up tents and stages and they're sleeping here. This is a twenty four hour protests and right now it's about midday here, and it's a hundred and ten degrees. But has you can probably hear they're still marching in. A lot of ways what you're hearing. Here is a celebration of a newfound freedom here in Sudan. Young Sudanese the flexing this newfound power, and they're telling the military in their face in their territory that they are not going to move until they had power over to civilians. Well, is that going to happen? I mean there had been negotiating with the military over the possibility of some kind of handover, but protesters are still out there. And as you say don't seem to be going anywhere. So what what is what message are they sending now in negotiations? Just they haven't gone very well over the weekend. There had been a breakthrough both sides agreed that there would be some kind of power sharing agreement between the military and the protesters, but the military has been clear that they want to keep power. They want control of this transitional council, and what they have put on the table is that this council would have ten members and seven of them would be military. The protesters say the military can keep a seat at the table because they say they need the protection of the villa Terry. But they. They want the majority. They want control they want to control this transition, and they say that the military is just part and parcel of the Bashir regime that they were the ones responsible for a lot of the tragedies that have happened in this country for the past few decades. So I mean is the military signaling though, that they respect the idea of democracy. Even if they want to hang onto power through the transition. This is happening. I mean, look there's there's a new freedom here. But the military has said that the protesters have to get off the streets, and they are saying we're not getting off the streets. In fact, they've started burning tires again, which they had not done since Bashir was ousted so they are sticking to their ground here.

What is it tell us about? But shears relationship to the military. Well, it's really interesting because the sheer has always had an extremely close relationship to military, and that is one of the things that has enabled him to stay in pal for this long. But I think the military sore with just the strength of the protests and the breadth of the protest is the other thing this is not just from an narrow section of the Sudanese population. It was really from across the whole country. Soul that the protesters which is not going to accept but she is staying in pal. And I think that is why they have moved to take control. It should be notion though, that they taking control full themselves.

He was able to use the wealth of the state to develop a patronage system to manage to keep potential rivals. Happy enough, but it two thousand eleven when south Sudan voted to come running dependent nation what they took within was the vast oil revenues that Sudan had been using. She himself had been using to help keep himself pallor, and since then we've seen a decline in the Sudanese economy. And but she you're losing the ability to maintain the patronage system that had helped insane pow civil so he survived his relationship with Osama bin Laden he survived the heat. He got for Darfur. But it was the economy. It sounds like what you're saying. That was his undoing. I think it's coupling of the economy with just the sheer courage of the protesters in addition to obviously being able to to develop this patronage system, the mechanism that he had was not a military, but the gruesome feud security services in Sudan that are no inflow just detaining people for any sign of opposition against the government for any sign of protest routinely torturing distance. So Sudan is at a strange impasse on the one hand, Omar al-bashir is out. But the defense ministers declared a three-month state of emergency and impose a curfew. What does this mean for the arrival of democracy, which is what brought the protesters into the streets in the first place to protest is not satisfied by developments. Obviously, they're incredible step on everyone is by that. But this is not what people are being protesting full.
