Sudan’s Military Dissolves Govt, Declares State Of Emergency.


The chairman of Sudan’s ruling body General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan on Monday announced the dissolution of the transitional government and the sovereign council and declared a nationwide state of emergency.

Just hours after the information ministry said most of the civilians in the two bodies had been detained, including the prime minister, Burhan reiterated his commitment to “the transition towards a civilian state”.

He said he would form a “competent” government, pledged to create numerous state institutions like the supreme court, and said Sudan remained committed to international agreements it had signed.
