Al-Arabiya reported on Wednesday that the Sudanese authorities have thwarted a coup attempt in the country, APA reports citing Sputnik.
Sudan experienced months of anti-government protests, which culminated in a military coup on April 11. The Sudanese Transitional Military Council (TMC) came to power and pledged to hold a new election within two years.
Then-President Omar Bashir, who had been in power for 30 years, was overthrown and then imprisoned. However, the protests have continued, with the demonstrators demanding that the military hand power to a new civilian government.
