Over 20 people have been killed with several wounded following attacks over continuous protests calling for President Omar Al-Bashir to exit power.
Sudanese Soldiers on Monday in a rare move went to the rescue of protesters, preventing other security forces from breaking up the anti-government protests.
Protesters have been camping outside the outside the Defence Ministry in central Khartoum to intensify calls for their President to resign.
But attacks carried out overnight by “masked gunmen” outside the defence ministry compound have led to deaths.
The head of Sudan’s main opposition party, Sadiq al-Mahdi confirmed the news on Tuesday.
Al-Mahdi, is asking for “the handing of power to a select military command that is qualified to negotiate with representatives of the people to build a new system qualified to achieve peace and democracy”.
Pressure is mounting on Mr. Bashir to exit power but he has remained resolute refusing to give in.
Bashir has always vowed to continue as President, saying he would not be stampeded into leaving office by protests.
But he is now calling for a dialogue over the concerns of protesters.
The protests were triggered after bread prices increased from one Sudanese pound ($0.02) to three Sudanese pounds ($0.063).
Bashir came to power in 1989 when he led a group of officers in a military coup that ousted a democratically elected government.
