United States suspends talks with Sudan after military ousts Bashir

After almost 30 years in power, Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir has been ousted and arrested, the defence minister says.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt says two years of potential military rule in Sudan "is not the answer" for "real change" in the country.

According to BBC, the Sudan Professional Association-an entity behind the organised protests-has urged Sudan nationals to congregate at army headquarters for Friday prayers.

"Kenya will continue to support Sudan as it manages its internal affairs because the sovereignty of all Igad (Intergovernmental Authority on Development) member states is something of great importance to us".

The defense minister said that a military council will be formed to run the country during a transitional period of two years.

WhatsApp beta version 2.19.101 introduces a new 'Ignore archived chats' feature
This feature was originally rolled out back in October 2018 and WhatsApp has finally chose to add this feature with this update. A new WhatsApp Beta version 2.19.101 has been spotted in testing, revealing new features that make users' worthwhile.

Following Defence Minister Awad Bin Ouf's TV appearance, officially announcing the overthrow of the previous government, tens of thousands of frustrated Sudanese labelled the military coup a hoax, saying that the same faces they are opposed to are in the security committee.

Bashir's ouster comes only days after the same happened to his Algerian counterpart Abdelaziz Bouteflika who was equally forced to resign after intense protests and demonstrations.

"The Sudanese people should determine who leads them in their future", spokesman Robert Palladino said at a news briefing.

Ibn Auf also announced in a televised statement the imposition of a one-month curfew - to take effect Thursday evening - along with a three-month nationwide state of emergency. Instead, they must now consign to history the assault on human rights that marked al-Bashir's 30 years in power.

"The transitional authorities must take all necessary measures to facilitate a peaceful transfer of power in Sudan".
