Will the agreement in Sudan hold this time?

Sudan’s prime minister is reinstated after an agreement with the military, which had previously deposed him.

It is a deal being met with optimism and uncertainty.

Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok is promising a path to democracy, after being reinstated under an agreement with the military.

He was removed nearly a month ago, when the army seized power and dissolved the cabinet.

Weeks of protests followed. At least 41 people died during confrontations with police.

Several political factions have rejected the deal. They say they will not recognise any agreement with the armed forces.

How will the army deal with growing public anger?
