Khartoum: The general commander of the Sudanese Armed Forces, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, announced a coup earlier this week in the North African nation. He has decided to give relief to the ambassadors of six countries. This information came out from an official media report on Friday.

The news agency Xinhua quoted the report as saying that under this decision ambassadors stationed in Belgium, Geneva, Washington, Paris, Beijing and Doha have been relieved.

On Monday, al-Burhan declared a nationwide state of emergency. The Transitional Sovereign Council and government were dissolved and the state governors were relieved.

Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok was detained along with other civilian leaders but was released again.

However, the army chief denied Hamdok’s arrest, saying the prime minister lived at al-Burhan’s home and was safe until his release.

Protesters continue their protest in Khartoum and al-Burhan rejected the measures announced.
