Soldiers successfully carried out an offensive against members of the country’s interim government on Monday morning.
According to reports, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok was apprehended by soldiers when an unknown group of soldiers invaded his home.

This latest development has sparked fears of yet another military coup in a country already riven by political unrest.
Armed soldiers have detained five ministers of the Transitional Sovereignty Council, including four military officials and one civilian, according to local media sources.
This armed offensive is the latest in a series of attempts to depose Hamdok, who took power in 2019.
Citizens should come to the streets to oppose any military coup, according to the Sudanese Professionals Association.
On Monday, there were additional reports of internet failures in Khartoum’s capital, which were confirmed by online infrastructure watchdog Netblocks.
“Internet disrupted in #Sudan amid claims of a military coup and the incarceration of the Prime Minister; real-time network data reveal countrywide connection at 34% of normal levels; incident ongoing,” the group tweeted.
Recall that on Sunday, pro-military protestors shut off all access to the capital.
Since Omar al-ouster Bashir’s in 2019, the military and civilians have shared authority, and last month’s attempted coup was mostly blamed on soldiers loyal to Bashir, who has been charged with war crimes.
