Sudan: Junta says government formation “immiinent” after coup

Source: Yahoo! News

“Sudan’s army said Thursday the formation of a new government is now ‘imminent,’ following last week’s military takeover which triggered international condemnation and mass anti-coup protests. General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan — Sudan’s de facto leader since the 2019 ouster of autocratic president Omar al-Bashir — last week dissolved the government, detained the civilian leadership and declared a state of emergency. … Last week’s coup triggered nationwide mass protests against the military — demonstrations met by a deadly crackdown by security forces, resulting in at least a dozen people killed and scores wounded. World powers demanded a swift return to civilian rule, and made punitive aid cuts that will hit hard in a country already mired in a dire economic crisis.” (11/04/21)
