Four ministers and high-ranking officials from Khartoum state have been arrested in Sudan, Al Hadath reported.
The army blocked all entrances to the capital of the country Khartoum and blocked bridges. Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamduk is currently under house arrest. The house of the Prime Minister was surrounded by the military. The detentions, which are carried out by people in military uniforms without identification marks, continue.
In addition, mobile communications and the Internet, as well as landline telephone communications, have been disconnected in Khartoum.
In the near future, a statement by the head of the country’s Sovereign Council, Abdel Fattah al-Burkhan, is expected. Mass arrests began after al-Burkhan’s meeting with the head of government, Abdullah Hamduk.
It should be noted that in 2019, unrest began in Sudan after, as a result of a coup d’etat, President Omar al-Bashir, who had ruled the country since 1993, was removed from power.
Earlier it was reported that on September 21 this year, there was an unsuccessful coup attempt in Sudan. Tanks appeared on the streets of Khartoum. For a certain time, the military banned movement on all bridges over the Nile River. As a result, the action to overthrow the government was suppressed. The coup was attempted by functionaries and those who support the regime of former President Omar al-Bashir.
