BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir has allegedly been deposed after a military coup in the capital city of Khartoum.
According to Lebanon’s Al-Mayadeen TV, the Sudanese Army members have declared that President Omar Bashir had been removed from all positions amid reports of a coup in the African country following weeks of anti-government protests.
The media outlet cited sources as saying that the military personnel planned to announce the creation of a military council which would govern the country during a transition period that might last for up to one year.
Furthermore, there are reports that the Sudanese Army has seized the state TV offices during their overthrow of Al-Bashir from office.
As of now, there is no official word on whether or not these reports are true; however, with the ongoing protests across the country, it appears that Al-Bashir’s future as president of Sudan is in jeopardy.
An announcement from the Sudanese military is set to take place in the coming hours as the situation currently remains uncertain.
