Thousands celebrate as Sudan signs power-sharing agreement

Flags adorn buildings as people line the streets to celebrate historic moment

Thousands of people waved flags to celebrate the Sudan signing a power-sharing agreement on Saturday.

People sat on top of trains, buses and buildings to mark the historic day.

The three-hour ceremony took place at Khartoum’s Chinese-built Friendship Hall.

Representatives of the country’s protest movement that led the uprising against longtime dictator Omar Al Bashir from power four months ago formally inked the deal with the military generals who have governed since April.
