KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Sudan’s military rulers and the main opposition alliance started talks in Khartoum on Wednesday over who should lead Sudan toward elections.

A Reuters journalist saw representatives of the two sides meet at a hotel in the capital.

Earlier, Sudan’s main opposition alliance said it was prepared for direct talks with the country’s military rulers over who should head a sovereign council to lead Sudan’s transition to democracy. Talks between the two sides collapsed after members of the security services raided a sit-in protest camp outside the defense ministry on June 3.
