Sudan protest: Clashes among armed forces at Khartoum sit-in

Sudans government has   deployed its army around its Khartoum headquarters as thousands of protesters defied tear gas to demonstrate for the third day, calling for leader Omar Al-Bashir’s resignation

Since protests erupted across Sudan in December agents of the powerful National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) and riot police have cracked down on demonstrators, but the army has not intervened.

Protesters have since Saturday camped out around the army complex — which also houses Bashir’s residence and the defence ministry — in the biggest anti-government demonstrations for months.

Witnesses said soldiers were putting up barricades in streets near the compound after NISS personnel and police failed to dislodge the demonstrators.

They added that several vehicles carrying intelligence agency members and riot police arrived in the early hours at the protest site,
