Sudan intelligence chief resigns

Date: Apr 15, 2019

The head of Sudan's feared National Intelligence and Security Service, Salih Ghosh, has resigned from his post.

The chief of the transitional military council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, has accepted the resignation of the chief of NISS, the transitional military council said.

Ghosh had overseen a sweeping crackdown led by NISS agents against protesters taking part in four months of mass demonstrations that led up to the toppling of veteran president Omar al-Bashir in a palace coup by the army on Thursday.

Thousands of protesters, opposition activists and journalists were arrested.
