Sudan’s Government Says It Thwarted a Coup Attempt by Bashir Loyalists

HeadlineSep 21, 2021

In Sudan, government and military leaders say they’ve thwarted an attempted coup d’état. Sudanese state media says military officers and civilians linked to the former regime of President Omar al-Bashir unsuccessfully tried to seize a state-run radio and TV building and several other government institutions around the capital, Khartoum. President al-Bashir ruled Sudan from 1993 until April 2019, when he was ousted from power by the military amid massive popular protests. As tanks and other heavy vehicles surrounded Sudan’s parliament, a member of the ruling military-civilian council wrote on social media, “All is under control. The revolution is victorious.”
