Sudanese prosecutors have charged ousted president Omar al-Bashir with involvement in killing protesters and incitement to kill protesters during the uprising that drove him from power last month, state news agency SUNA reported Monday.
The situation has escalated on Sunday around the location of the sit-in in the headquarters of the Sudanese army, and protesters closed the Nile Street, one of the main streets in central Khartoum. Early on Tuesday the TMC said it would not allow citizens' safety to be jeopardized.
The military council said in a late night press conference that it had "noticed some armed infiltrators among the protesters". "From what we understand they've agreed on the structure, that is to say that there will be an executive legislature and that there will be this ruling council, but the make-up of that council - How many civilians will sit on that body?"
Those points will be addressed on Tuesday, according to Transitional Military Council (TMC) spokesman Lieutenant General Shams El Din Kabbashi and Taha Osman Ishaq, a spokesman for the Declaration of Freedom and Change Forces opposition alliance.
The talks are being held in an "optimistic atmosphere", Kabbashi said in a statement, adding that the negotiations aimed "to reach an agreement over the arrangements of the transitional period".
Pressing their demand for a handover to civilian rule, they also blocked a road leading to the capital's northern district of Bahari.
"We will continue tomorrow with talks on the ratio of participation on the sovereign level. and the length of the transitional period", he said.
Since 6 April, thousands of protesters have been holding a continuous sit-in in front of the headquarters of the General Command of the Sudanese Armed Forces in Khartoum to pressure the Transitional Military Council to hand over power to civilians.

Following a deadlock in negotiations, the protest alliance on Saturday said the army generals had invited the movement for a new round of talks.
The protests have so far given them the only leverage they have against the military council and they are not about to let it go.
The mass protests, which drove Bashir from office after nearly 30 years in power, were still being held outside the army headquarters in central Khartoum, with the aim of forcing the ruling council to cede power to civilian rule.
They have singled out its silence on the constitutional position of Islamic sharia law, which was the guiding principle of all legislation under Bashir's rule.
Demonstrators converged on the military complex last month seeking the army's help in ousting him.
The army generals and protesters are at loggerheads over who will sit on a new ruling body that would replace the existing military council.
The killings took place after nightfall on Monday, when protests in Sudan usually swell during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan that is marked by dawn to dusk fasting.
