A Saudi-Emirati delegation has arrived in Sudan to express support for the country's Transitional Military Council, as world leaders announce their stance on the military coup that ousted President Omar Al-Bashir last week.
Al-Bashir, whose 30-year rule came to an abrupt end last week, has been under the custody of the army.
In a bid to woo Western opinion, the military council has also backtracked on its position towards longstanding warrants for Bashir's arrest issued by the International Criminal Court in The Hague on charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.
Protesters have demanded a civilian-led transition. A pariah in many countries, there are few options for the ousted president.
He was moved to Koper Prison late Tuesday, according to the ex-minister.
The military council has pledged that individuals implicated in killing protesters would be held to account and that demonstrators detained under a state of emergency imposed by the president during his final weeks in power would be freed.
The two spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because they weren't authorized to talk to reporters.
Despite Bashir's close ties to the military's senior leadership, mid- and lower-ranking officers more connected to society sympathised with the protesters' demands, said Hamid Eltigani, a Sudanese professor of public policy at the American University in Cairo.
Amnesty International urged Sudan's military to ensure that he and other detainees "are protected from torture and other ill-treatment" in the wake of the coup.

Meanwhile, hundreds joined a march by doctors and health workers toward the sit-in, which has become the epicentre of the popular uprising in Sudan.
Aya Abdel Aziz, a 22-year-old medical student, said she made a decision to join the march, which started from the University of Khartoum, to press for women's rights as well as handover of power to the people. "And what we know is that what the military says and what the military does can be quite different".
The protesters have remained in the streets, demanding a return to civilian rule from the military council that's replaced Bashir. The group fears that the army, dominated by Bashir appointees, will cling to power or select one of its own to succeed him.
Uganda will consider offering asylum to Bashir despite his decade-old indictment by the International Criminal Court, Uganda's state minister for foreign affairs, Okello Oryem, told Reuters.
Oryem, while presenting the ministry's budget requirements for financial year 2019 to 2020 said, Bashir and Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni are the guarantors to the peace deal in the neighbouring South Sudan.
Sudan has taken heavy losses in the unpopular war but grew heavily dependent in the last years of Bashir's rule on credit from the oil-rich Gulf Arab states to prop up the collapsing economy. They demanded the dissolution of Al Bashir's National Congress Party and said they received affirmation from the military council that the party will not participate in a transitional government.
On Wednesday, a rebel leader ordered a three-month suspension of hostilities in Blue Nile and South Kordofan states where his forces have been fighting government troops.
"What is important to Uganda is a resolution of the transition period in Sudan, which is peaceful to the people of Sudan and the neighbors and we hope that Sudan will continue being intact as one country and not fall apart", he said.
