Sudanese protest organisers Monday called on their supporters to mobilise outside the army headquarters, saying there was an attempt to "disperse the sit-in" where thousands have camped out for 10 days.
"There is an attempt to disperse the sit-in from the army headquarters area, they are trying to remove the barricades," the SPA said in a statement to AFP.
"We call on our people to come immediately to the sit-in area to protect our revolution." Witnesses said troops were seen removing the barricades that demonstrators had put up as a security measure.
"Protesters are chanting 'army is our army'," an onlooker told AFP from the site of the sit-in.
The SPA described the attempt to disperse the crowds as "an indication that the military council will not fulfil its commitment given to the people," in a separate statement on its Facebook page.
Their key demands include handing power to a transitional civilian government and bringing leaders of Bashir's regime to justice, including the deposed president.
