On the morning of April 11, world media reported on a military coup in Sudan. Satellite TV channel al-Mayadeen had information that at an emergency meeting, the leadership of the Sudanese army decided to remove from office President Omar al-Bashir, his assistants, and also to dismiss the government.
It was reported that the building of the state television and radio company in Khartoum was seized by representatives of the country’s armed forces. At the same time, as of 12.00 (Moscow time), the representatives of the military did not make the promised statement on the establishment of a military council, called to lead the country during the transitional period.
For the past few hours, Sudan’s state television has continued to broadcast national songs and military music.
“Expect an important statement by the armed forces in the near future,” the announcement of the military briefing has already been on air for four hours.
It is known that Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir is currently in the building of the General Staff of the army. This information was confirmed by a high-ranking source in the presidential palace in Khartoum. Earlier, a number of media outlets wrote that from Wednesday evening, April 10, al-Bashir was under house arrest.
According to a source in the presidential palace, the military is also awaiting statements. However, work there continues in the normal mode.
Recall that popular protests have not subsided in Sudan for more than four months. They began with demands for lowering the price of bread, but gradually turned into statements about the need to change the political regime of Omar al-Bashir, who has ruled the country continuously for 30 years.
