Stores and restaurants reopened on Wednesday in Khartoum, after Sudan’s protest leaders decided to end the civil disobedience launched after the army’s brutal crackdown. The move they say is to resume talks with the ruling generals. Despite the reopening of some shops, many residents prefer to remain at home due to deployment of heavily armed security forces. Talks between the two sides were suspended on May 20, with each side seeking to lead the future body that would lead the transition for three years. A campaign of civil disobedience was launched to put pressure on the ruling generals, after the repression started with the bloody dispersion on June 3.
