Five Sudanese protesters and an army major were shot dead on Monday in the capital, hours after protest leaders and the ruling generals reached a breakthrough agreement on transitional authorities to run the country.

The TMC and the Declaration of Freedom and Change Forces opposition alliance said on Monday they had agreed to a power structure for the transition following Bashir's removal and arrest last month.

Meanwhile, Sudan charged ousted president Omar Al-Bashir and others with incitement and involvement in the killing of protesters, the public prosecutor said in a statement on Monday.

On Tuesday, the Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA), which spearheaded the protests, called on protesters to converge on the sit-in. The paramilitary force, which has led counterinsurgency campaigns in Darfur and other regions, is led by Gen. Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, the deputy head of the military council.

"We will continue tomorrow with talks on the ratio of participation on the sovereign level ... and the length of the transitional period", he said.

But in the month since then, the protests had previously focused nearly entirely on the sit-in outside army headquarters as protest leaders wrestled with the generals who toppled Bashir over a roadmap for a civilian-led transition.

Protesters said counter-revolutionaries linked to the former regime were inciting violence.

The MTC is now overseeing a two-year "transitional period" during which it has pledged to hold presidential elections.

At least 96 have been killed around Sudan since the sit-in started on 6 April, but Monday night's deaths were the first in Khartoum for several weeks.

Later, RSF men fired gunshots to disperse protesters near Blue Nile bridge and thick clouds of tear gas were fired near Jumhuriya Street south of the river, where the RSF were seen beating a rickshaw driver as they patrolled in vehicles armed with sticks and guns, witnesses said.

The military council also confirmed that the deal had been reached.

Sudan's army rulers and protesters are to hold fresh talks over handing power to a civilian administration on Monday, spokesmen for the generals and the protest movement said.

Demonstrators converged on the military complex last month seeking the army's help in ousting Bashir.

The generals have proposed that the new council be military led, while the protest leaders want a majority civilian body.

They were killed in gunfire at a sit-in outside military headquarters where demonstrators are demanding full civilian government.

Although crowds have dwindled during the day due to the scorching heat, protesters gather in their thousands after breaking the daytime fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
