Sudan’s New Military Council Chief Steps Down

Sudan’s military council chief General Awad Ibn Ouf announced Friday he was stepping down, just a day after he was sworn in following the ouster of veteran president Omar al-Bashir.

“I hereby announce my resignation as head of the Transitional Military Council and the appointment of the person, in whose experience and suitability I trust to bring this ship to a safe shore,” Ibn Ouf said on state television.
