The African Union (AU) said that Sudan's military rulers should hand over power to a civilian-led transitional authority within 60 days, Reuters has reported.

In a statement, the AU said it noted "with deep regret" that the military had not stepped aside and handed power to civilians within a 15-day period set by the AU last month. The 60 days were a final extension for Sudan's Transitional Military Council to hand over power to civilians, the AU said.
