Sudan’s Feared Intelligence Chief Resigns in Another Victory for Protesters

Sudan’s powerful intelligence chief resigned on Saturday, two days after the president was ousted, as huge crowds of demonstrators remained encamped outside the country’s military headquarters. By Friday night, the general who appeared to be in charge of the junta announced that he was stepping down. The move was seen as intended to assuage the demonstrators, who viewed him as not very different from the ousted president — a point their protest chant made clear: “We do not replace a thief with a thief.” Still, the departure of Mr. Gosh seems, at minimum, a symbolic victory for protesters eager to dispense with the old regime. The military council also announced Saturday that it was lifting a curfew imposed after Mr. al-Bashir’s ouster, although it had been largely ignored by the demonstrators.
