Sudan's main protest group said an attempt was under way on Monday to break up a sit-in outside the defence ministry compound in the capital, Khartoum.

The Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) called on people to respond by joining the sit-in to "protect your revolution", according to a statement published on its social media pages.
