The suspects in the killings of at least five pro-democracy protesters in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, have been arrested, the military council says.
Gen Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo said the men had signed confessions without giving details about their identities or how many they were.
A member of the security forces was also killed in Monday’s violence.
Gen Dagalo was speaking before talks between the military and the opposition were expected to resume.
Sudan has been governed by a transitional military council since President Omar al-Bashir was overthrown in a coup last month.
Protesters have been demanding full civilian government and the killings happened at a sit-in outside military headquarters in Khartoum.
Demonstrators said soldiers were responsible, but the army blamed “saboteurs”.
The authorities believe they have detained the right people.
“Juridical experts have seen footage from two cameras that filmed them. And if [you think] we are lying, the cameras don’t lie,” said Gen Dagalo, who is also known as Hemeti.
