Thousands of protesters march against UN in Sudan

Thousands of Sudanese Islamists gathered Saturday for the second time in two weeks to call out what they see as “interference” in the country’s affairs.

They are opposed to the UN’s efforts to mediate between the Sudan’s military junta and civilian leaders following last year’s coup staged by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.

The protestors also expressed anger at a transitional constitution proposal by the Sudanese Bar Association, which plans on banning activities by the National Congress Party, Islamist movement of former leader al-Bashir.

The army chief last week warned the Islamists to steer clear of the military, saying the army does not belong to any party.
