A protest has been held in Sudan in support of the military, to denounce efforts by the UN to resolve the political crisis.
The demonstrators – many of whom were driven to the event in buses – gathered outside the UN office in the capital, Khartoum, to condemn what they called outside interference.
Earlier this month the UN began a mediation effort but has stressed that it is not imposing any options on the people of Sudan.
Since October’s military coup there have been frequent pro-democracy protests in many Sudanese cities.
Security forces have violently dispersed them – killing more than 70 people.
