Sudan’s ruling military council and opposition leaders have signed a power-sharing accord after all-night talks.

It is a “historic moment” for the country, the deputy head of Sudan’s ruling military council, Mohamed Mohamed Hamdan “Hemeti” Dagolo, is quoted as saying by AFP news agency.

The military seized power in April after deposing Omar al-Bashir.

In clashes with the military which have turned deadly, protesters demanded the military hand power to civilians.
