Khartoum (IP) – With the coup in Sudan, the political crisis has reached its peak, and the people of Khartoum and other cities have taken to the streets calling for the formation of a new government.

Iran Press/Africa: Sudan's coup leader Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan said the army seized power in the country on Monday to prevent what he called a civil war.

The people of Khartoum and other Sudanese cities participate in daily demonstrations, chanting slogans in support of the civilian rule and emphasizing the transfer of the presidency of the Sudanese governing council to civilians.

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.
