Members of Sudan’s transitional government and other civilian leaders have been arrested amid reports of a military coup.
Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok is among those reported to have been put under house arrest by unidentified soldiers.
Pro-democracy protesters have taken to the streets of the capital, Khartoum.
Military and civilian leaders have been at odds since long-time ruler Omar al-Bashir was overthrown two years ago and the transitional government set up.
Video footage from the north African nation’s capital on Monday showed protesters manning lit barricades and entering the area near the military’s headquarters, with soldiers looking on. (BBC)
