Sudan’s pro-democracy coalition Forces of Freedom and Change has signed an initial agreement with the military to restore civilian rule after last year’s coup.

The deal allows for a two-year civilian-led transition towards elections.

But protests challenging the agreement have already begun in the capital, city as people call for those who led the coup to be held accountable.

African Union, Arab Nations and western governments have backed negotiations between the army and civilians as a way to restore stability, end mass protests and try to save Sudan’s crashing economy.

Political leaders say calls for justice and other reforms will be tackled through further talks.
