Khartoum: Sudan's ousted president Omar Al Bashir has been charged over the killings of protesters during the anti-regime demonstrations that led to the end of his rule, the prosecutor general announced Monday.
"Omar Al Bashir and others have been charged for inciting and participating in the killing of demonstrators," the office of Sudan's acting prosecutor general Al-Waleed Sayyed Ahmed said.
The charges against Bashir came during an investigation into the death of a medic who had been killed during a protest in the capital's eastern district of Burri.
"The prosecutor general has recommended speeding up of the investigation of the killing of demonstrators," the statement from his office said.
Earlier this month, the public prosecutor ordered Bashir to be interrogated on charges of money laundering and financing terrorism.
There has been no comment from Bashir since his ousting and arrest on April 11.
Meanwhile, Sudan's protest leaders said Monday that agreement has been reached with the country's military rulers on the makeup of a new "sovereign council" to run the country.
"At today's meeting we agreed on the structure of the sovereign council which will include military and civilian representatives," Taha Osman, a spokesman for the protest movement, said.
Asked to elaborate, he said: "Tomorrow's discussions will revolve around the composition of the council."
