Sudanese judges to march in Khartoum - judge

KHARTOUM, April 25 (Reuters) - Sudanese judges will march on Thursday afternoon from the Supreme Court in Khartoum to a sit-in outside the Defence Ministry, joining for the first time the recent anti-government protests, one of the judges said.

Omar al-Bashir was overthrown by the military on April 11 after months of persistent protests against his rule. The march is the first by judges in Sudan since before Bashir took power in an Islamist-backed military coup in 1989, making it highly symbolic.
