Sudan’s military coup leaders have warned protesters still on the streets that there will be “zero tolerance” for disturbances.
A spokesman insisted the army did not seek power and Sudan’s future would be decided by the protesters – but said the army would maintain public order.
Protesters are still out in Khartoum, fearing the coup leaders are too close to ousted ruler Omar al-Bashir.
The military says it will not extradite Mr Bashir on war crimes charges.
Mr Bashir is the subject of two international arrest warrants issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC), which accuses him of organising war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sudan’s Darfur region between 2003 and 2008, allegations he denies.
However, he may be put on trial inside Sudan, according to the military council set up after the coup.

Mr Bashir, one of the world’s longest-serving leaders until he was ousted on Thursday, is now in custody.
His downfall followed months of unrest which began in December over the rising cost of living. At least 38 people have died in the protests.
What are the military offering the protesters?
The army has said it will oversee a transitional period followed by elections. As part of this, it is imposing a three-month state of emergency, with the constitution suspended.
The military council will be in place for a maximum of two years, it says, but could last only a month if the transition to civilian rule is managed smoothly.

Lt-Gen Omar Zain al-Abidin, who heads the military council’s political committee, said on Friday: “The solutions will be devised by those in protest.
“You, the people, will provide the solutions for all economic and political issues. We have come with no ideology, we have come here to maintain order and security to provide the opportunity for the people of Sudan to achieve the change they aspire to.
“We have no ambition to hold the reins of power. We are here to provide an all-inclusive umbrella.
“Our key responsibility is to maintain public order,” he added. “We will have zero tolerance for any misdeed in any corner of the country.”
