The streets of the capital after announcing the thwarting of the “coup attempt”.

The Sudanese government announced that it had thwarted a coup attempt early on Tuesday, as the country is undergoing a fragile transition since the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir in 2019.

The government said that officers and civilians linked to the ousted president’s regime attempted a coup, but the government quickly took control of matters. “We took control of an attempted coup by army officers in the early hours of Tuesday morning,” Information Minister Hamza Balloul said.

He added that the authorities “arrested leaders in the failed conspiracy in which military and civilian officers belonging to the former regime participated.”

Agence France-Presse quoted high-ranking military and government sources as saying that the attempt included a group of officers who were “immediately stopped” after they “failed” to take control of the state radio and television building.
