Sudan’s military has since declared a state of emergency as many political leaders were arrested while others were put under house arrest.
KDRTV respondents in Khartoum report gunfire as protestors took to the street to push for an effective power transition.
The coup has caught the intention of international powers who have been recently tried to establish a good relationship with Sudan.
