African Union suspended Sudan demanding civilian rule to be established in the country

The African Union’s Peace and Security Council has suspended Sudan as there is no civilian rule established in the country. The decision was taken at AU’s peace and Security Council meeting in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa.
This move by AU intensifies global pressure on Sudan’s new military leaders to stand down after witnessing worst violence since Bashir’s fall. 
AU said Sudan will be suspended until power was transferred to a civilian-led authority in the country. It also demanded to resolve an entrenched and bloody crisis.
The AU’s suspension followed the forceful dispersal of the month-long sit-ins. The military action resulted in the death of more than a hundred protesters.
