Just a day after overthrowing former autocratic president Omar al-Bashir who was in power since 1989, Ibn Auf stepped down as the council leader. Protesters say Ibn Auf is too close to the now former regime.

At least 38 people have been killed so far in the protests to oust Bashir that began last December.
