Sudan: Al-Bashir to Step Down, Army Takes Over

Telesur news

Following months of protests, civil unrest and police-civilian clashes, embattled Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir plans to step down after military intervention, according to a report from Arabiya Thursday.

Multiple media reports, including Arabiya, have stated that the resident of al-Bashir was surrounded and eventually entered by military forces, and former and current senior government officials, guards and other political leaders have been detained. The international airport in capital Khartoum has also been closed, Al Hadath TV said.

Arabiya announced that the military has taken control of the state television and radio signals.

Sudanese troops have been deployed in Khartoum and the army is expected to make an announcement to address the reported ousting of the unpopular leader.

Tens of thousands of people have flooded the streets of Sudan’s capital to celebrate what is believed to be the end of al-Bashir’s turbulent 30-year leadership, by the hands of the military, BBC reported citing a protester.

Last Sunday Sudan suffered a total power blackout, the ministry of electricity and water acknowledged without giving an explanation but said that engineers and technicians were attempting to restore power and that more information would be provided subsequently.

Recently, Human Rights Watch made an appeal to Tunisia to comply with the rules of the International Criminal Court and not allow al-Bashir, who is allegedly wanted for crimes, to attend a summit in the country or prepare to extradite him should he make an appearance.

Al-Bashir had been in power for three decades and refusing calls to step down.
