KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Sudan’s Transitional Military Council (TMC) said on Tuesday it had accepted the resignations of three of its members.

The members, who resigned last week, include Lieutenant-General Omar Zain al-Abideen who headed the TMC’s political committee. The other two are Lieutenant-General Jalal al-Deen al-Sheikh and Lieutenant-General Al-Tayeb Babakr Ali Fadeel.

The Sudanese Professionals’ Association, the main protest organiser, had demanded that the three be dismissed, accusing them of involvement in a crackdown that killed dozens of protesters.
