Sudan's military dissolves the country’s transitional government and declares a state of emergency

Army leader Abdel Fattah al-Burhan announced a state of emergency in Sudan hours after Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok was placed under house arrest along with other senior government officials, according to local media. The arrests come after a failed coup attempt in September and weeks of rising tensions between Sudan’s civilian and military leaders, the AP reported. Protesters took to the streets in Khartoum, with reports of gunfire and injuries.

KHARTOUM, Oct 25 (Reuters) - Sudan's military seized power from a transitional government on Monday, and soldiers killed at least three people and wounded 80 as street protests broke out against the coup.

The leader of the takeover, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, dissolved the military-civilian Sovereign Council that had been set up to guide the country to democracy following the overthrow of long-ruling autocrat Omar al-Bashir in a popular uprising two years ago.
