CAIRO (Reuters) - Sudan’s military council on Thursday dismissed public prosecutor Alwaleed Sayed Ahmed Mahmoud and appointed Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah to succeed him, prosecution sources told Reuters.

The move comes as authorities investigate the dispersal of a protest camp outside the Defence Ministry in Khartoum that killed dozens on June 3.
