On Monday 25 October 2021, media sources reported that Sudani Prime Minister, Abdalla Hamdok, had been placed under house arrest, and military forces attempted a coup and arrested four cabinet ministers, one civilian member of the ruling Sovereign Council, and several state governors and party leaders.
Sudan has been on edge since a failed coup plot last month unleashed bitter recriminations between military and civilian groups meant to be sharing power following the 2019 ouster of former leader Omar al-Bashir. Bashir was toppled and jailed after months of street protests.
