Military steps up presence in Sudan Cities
There seems to be an increased presence of the military in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, and neighbouring Omdurman city, following reports of an attempted coup.
Footage shared on social media shows tanks deployed on the streets and soldiers on guard.
A government official says ”there had been an attempt to take control of state radio in Omdurman.”
State media has also ‘blamed elements loyal to the former President Omar al-Bashir for the attempted coup.
Sudan’s transitional government, which has been in place since 2019, is under pressure to deliver economic and political reforms amid competing demands from conservative and liberal constituencies.
