The coup attempt targeted the Transitional Military Council which was created after the resignation of the country's long-term leader, Omar Bashir, the outlet noted.
Earlier this month, head of the Sudanese Transitional Military Council Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan called for a general election to be held within the next nine months.
The situation escalated in early April when Bashir, who had been in power for nearly 30 years, was detained by the country's military. The Transitional Military Council promised to hold a new election in two years’ time. However, protesters continued to hit the streets, demanding the military to hand power to a new civilian government.
