KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Sudan’s opposition alliance said on Tuesday the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces had used live ammunition on Monday and that the military was responsible for what happened.

One policeman and three protesters were killed in Khartoum on Monday and many other demonstrators were wounded as violence flared after army generals and protest groups reached an agreement on a political transition, state TV said.

The opposition alliance, known as the Declaration of Freedom and Change Forces (DFCF), also said that Wednesday would be the final day of negotiations with the ruling military council for a handover of power to civilians.
