Sudan’s new military ruler has ordered the release of protesters jailed by special emergency courts.

He  vowed on Saturday to “uproot” the regime of ousted president Omar al-Bashir and its symbols, in a televised address to the nation.

“I announce the restructuring of state institutions according to the law and pledge to fight corruption and uproot the regime and its symbols,” General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan said, a day after he was sworn in to head Sudan’s new ruling military council.

Burhan said those involved in the killing of protesters would face justice and announced the immediate lifting of a night-time curfew.
