The arrest of officials in Sudan… Talking about a ‘coup’ and protesting popular movements

On Monday, Sudanese demonstrators blocked roads in some streets of Khartoum and set tires on fire, in protest against the arrest of officials in the executive authority, according to an AFP journalist.

For weeks, the Sudanese street has been divided between demands for a military government and others to hand over power to civilians. The Internet was cut off from Sudan today, according to AFP journalists.

Simultaneously, I announce Al-Hadath TV today, Monday, that the head of the Sudanese Sovereign Council, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, will make an expected statement on the latest developments in the country.

Dubai-based television reported earlier that military forces had arrested a number of civilian leaders in Sudan before dawn today, while a well-known pro-democracy group called on the Sudanese to take to the streets to resist any military coup.

The Sudanese Ministry of Information stated on its Facebook page that members of the Transitional Sovereignty Council from the civilian component and a number of ministers of the transitional government were arrested, in light of reports of a coup unfolding in the capital, Khartoum.

The Internet was completely cut off in the country, according to an AFP journalist, noting that mobile phones only receive calls and no calls can be made through them.

Men in military uniforms cut off the roads linking the center of the Sudanese capital with Khartoum North and Omdurman, the two cities adjacent to the capital, while dozens of demonstrators took to the streets, blocking roads and burning tires, in protest against the arrest of government officials.

This comes after severe tensions in Sudan in recent weeks between the components of the authority, which consist of civilians and soldiers, and the split in the street between those who demand a military government and others who demand the handover of power to civilians.

Sudanese state television began broadcasting patriotic songs a while ago, which usually indicates that a major political event is taking place in the country.

A transitional sovereign council and a government that includes military and civilians have held power in Sudan since August 2019 under an agreement reached a few months after the overthrow of former President Omar al-Bashir in April of the same year and the end of his 30-year rule.
