Live Updates: Sudan's PM Transported to Unknown Location After 'Refusal to Back Coup'

Military forces have been deployed in Khartoum, restricting civilians' movement and using tear gas to disperse protests, reports suggest.
People are holding mass rallies in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum, demanding a transfer of power from the military to a civilian government after Al-Hadath TV reported that Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok was under house arrest - as well as four other cabinet ministers.
The coup was reported just a month before the expiration of the transitional Sovereign Council of Sudan, which assumed power in 2019, after ousting longtime President Omar al-Bashir. In November 2021, the council was expected to transfer power to the civilian government.
