Joint military forces on Monday detained civilian members of Sudan’s ruling body and a number of ministers within the transitional government, the information ministry said.
“Civilian members of the transitional sovereign council and a number of ministers from the transitional government have been detained by joint military forces,” the ministry said in a statement on Facebook.
“They have been led to an unidentified location.”
Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has also been placed under house arrest, local and regional media reported early Monday.
