 Sudan military names three members for sovereign council - Sky News Arabia

CAIRO (Reuters) - Sudan's sovereign council will include Transitional Military Council (TMC) head Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, his deputy Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo and Lieutenant General Yasser Al-Atta, the TMC's spokesperson said to Sky News Arabia.

The military's two remaining members will be named at a later time, Shams El Din Kabbashi said.
