Funcionários detidos em golpe militar no Sudão
October 25, 2021 - Os militares sudaneses tomaram o poder da segunda feira, dissolvendo o governo de transição horas depois de as tropas prenderem o Primeiro ministro em exercício e outros funcionários. Milhares de pessoas acorreram ás ruas em protesto contra o golpe que ameaça a frágil transição do país para a democracia.
The takeover comes more than two years after protesters forced the ouster of longtime autocrat Omar al-Bashir and just weeks before the military was expected to hand the leadership of the council that runs the country over to civilians.
After the early morning arrests of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and other officials, thousands poured into the streets of the capital, Khartoum, and its twin city of Omdurman. Footage shared online appeared to show protesters blocking streets and setting fire to tyres as security forces used tear gas to disperse them.
In the afternoon, the head of the military, Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, announced on national TV that he was dissolving the government and the Sovereign Council, a joint military and civilian body created four months after al-Bashir’s ouster to run the country.
