(CNN) Sudan's newly reinstated prime minister told CNN on Tuesday that he compromised in a deal with the country's military in order to "avoid bloodshed" and a civil war. Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and other ministers were detained during a military coup last month that saw the country's power-sharing government dissolved; more than 40 people have since been killed in protests. On Monday, Ibrahim told CNN that the agreement was "very humiliating for the Prime Minister," adding that it had been accepted "for the sake of the country." "There are so many people dying on the streets ... so the Prime Minister had to take this step and accept the humiliation," he said. The deal, signed on live television, calls for the release of all political prisoners arrested by security forces following the coup.

CAIRO — Sudan’s military and civilian leaders reached a deal to reinstate Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, who was deposed in a coup last month. According to the deal, signed Sunday, the military will also release government officials and politicians arrested since the coup. Sudanese have been taking to the streets in masses since the military takeover, which upended the country’s fragile transition to democracy. Hamdok has been held under house arrest by military leaders for weeks. Earlier, military and government officials who spoke of the deal said it also foresaw the release of government officials and politicians arrested since the Oct. 25 coup.

Sudan Coup Leaders Agree to Reinstate Prime Minister

Sudan’s military leaders on Sunday agreed to reinstate Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and allow him to form a technocratic government, nearly four weeks after ousting him in a coup that disrupted the country’s fragile transition to democracy. But the deal—announced publicly at a joint televised briefing by Mr. Hamdok and Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the top general who led the coup—was unlikely to end a deadly standoff between the military and pro-democracy protesters who have demanded an immediate move to civilian rule. Several leading protest groups on Sunday rejected any agreement with the military and thousands of demonstrators were gathering once again in the capital Khartoum.

Sudan’s military leaders agreed to reinstate Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and allow him to form a technocratic government, nearly four weeks after ousting him in a coup that disrupted the country’s fragile transition to democracy, a group of local mediators said Sunday. But the tentative deal—which was yet to be confirmed publicly by Mr. Hamdok and Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the top general who led the coup—was unlikely to end a deadly standoff between the military and pro-democracy protesters who have demanded an immediate move to civilian rule. Several leading protest groups on Sunday rejected any agreement with the military and said a demonstration planned for the afternoon was moving ahead.

NAIROBI, Kenya — Faced with a new wave of streets protests, Sudan’s military has agreed to reinstate the civilian prime minister, who was ousted last month in a coup, and to release political detainees, mediators and news reports said on Sunday. But even as reports of a deal emerged on Sunday morning, the main coalition of political and civil society groups forcefully rejected it. And there was still no word from the deposed prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok, who was apparently still under house arrest, one of his aides said. Mr. Hamdok became prime minister in 2019, after protests that forced out Sudan’s longtime dictator, Omar Hassan al-Bashir. He took the post as part of a power-sharing agreement between civilian and military leaders, leading to democratic elections.

Sudan's military plans to reinstate Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and release all political detainees under a deal to end weeks of deadly unrest, the head of one of the country's main political parties told Reuters on Sunday. The military dissolved Hamdok's cabinet and detained a number of civilians who held top positions under the power-sharing deal agreed with the military after Bashir was ousted. Under the new agreement between the military and civilian political parties, Hamdok will form an independent cabinet of technocrats, said Fadlallah Burma Nasir, head of the Umma Party who attended the talks that led to the deal. Hamdok is on board with the agreement to stop the bloodshed following protests against the coup, said a source close to the ousted prime minister, who could not immediately be reached for comment. The constitutional declaration struck between the military and civilians in 2019 after Bashir was ousted would remain the foundation in further talks, the source close to Hamdok said.

Khartoum, Sudan (CNN) Sudan's military chief on Sunday reinstated Abdalla Hamdok as prime minister, almost a month after he was ousted in a military takeover. Sudan's military chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan holds a press conference in Khartoum on October 26, 2021. The deal was rejected by Sudan's Forces of Freedom and Change coalition (FCC), which said Sunday there is "no negotiation, no partnership, nor legitimacy for the coup plotters." Sudanese protesters rally against the military takeover in Khartoum, Sudan, Sunday, November 21, 2021. The Sudan Doctors Syndicate (SDS) also rebuffed news of the political agreement reached by Sudan's military and Hamdok.

NAIROBI, Kenya — Sudanese security forces fired tear gas and live gunfire into crowds of demonstrators on Saturday, killing one person and wounding several others, as one of Africa’s largest countries plunged deeper into a crisis set off by a recent military coup. The demonstration was the latest in a series of actions, including strikes and civil disobedience, led by angry Sudanese hoping they can force General al-Burhan to reverse the coup. Their position is backed by the United States, which has called for the immediate restoration of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, and by other Western nations that have suspended aid to the cash-strapped country in an effort to pressure the military. But Sudan’s generals seem to be going in the opposite direction. On Thursday General al-Burhan appointed himself head of a new ruling body that excluded the civilians he had shared power with since the ouster of the longtime dictator, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, in 2019.

U.N. Rights Panel Pressures Sudan Over Coup
  + stars: | 2021-11-05 | by ( Nick Cumming-Bruce | ) www.nytimes.com   time to read: +1 min
GENEVA — The United Nations’ top human rights body decided on Friday to appoint an independent expert to monitor and report on abuses in Sudan since the military takeover less than two weeks ago, escalating international pressure on leaders of Africa’s third-largest country to restore civilian rule. At an emergency session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, countries from all regions condemned the Oct. 25 coup, the Sudanese army’s use of lethal force against pro-democracy demonstrators and the forced disappearance to secret locations of ministers, politicians, lawyers and activists. They called for their immediate release and the reinstatement of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, who was detained by the military. The seizure of power by Sudan’s military threatened to upend a fragile transition to democracy in the country — the largest on the African continent behind Algeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo — just as it was emerging from decades of harsh autocratic rule and isolation. The coup followed an uneasy power-sharing arrangement with civilian leaders that had been negotiated after a popular 2019 uprising that toppled Omar Hassan al-Bashir, Sudan’s longtime dictator, who has been wanted for years on genocide charges by the International Criminal Court.

Sudan's attempted military coup looks increasingly frail as tens of thousands of civilians continue to protest the ousting of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok. However, the scale and duration of the civilian resistance appears to have caught the armed forces by surprise, placing strain on relations within the military infrastructure. The U.S. and the World Bank swiftly suspended aid disbursements to Sudan following the coup, while foreign leaders called for the military to release Hamdok and other detained officials. Robert Besseling, CEO of political risk consultancy Pangea-Risk, said in a research note Monday that France may also retract its offer of a bridge loan to settle Sudan's huge arrears. The civilian-military transitional government had been in place since April 2019, following the popular overthrow of long-reigning dictator Omar al-Bashir.

Khartoum, Sudan (CNN) Sudan's Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, who is under house arrest following a military coup on Monday , says that he will never "willingly" stand down, according to sources close to the prime minister. Monday's coup, led by Sudan's top general, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, followed months of rising tensions in the country. "Without this acknowledgment and without the commitment to return to how things were, the Prime Minister will not negotiate. He refuses to stand down willingly as Prime Minister," the source said. Demonstrators protest against the military takeover in Khartoum, Sudan, on Saturday.

REUTERS/El Tayeb SiddigWASHINGTON, Oct 29 (Reuters) - The United States on Friday urged Sudan's military coup leaders to refrain from violence against peaceful protesters ahead of planned demonstrations on Saturday opposing the takeover, saying how the army reacts will be a litmus test. "Tomorrow is going to be a real indication of what the military intentions are," said a senior State Department official, briefing reporters on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters. "We call on the security forces to refrain from any and all violence against protesters and to fully respect the citizens' right to demonstrate peacefully," the official said. The U.S. official said Washington knew that there were problems with the transition but Sudanese military leaders never hinted at a takeover in their dealings last weekend with the U.S. delegation.

NAIROBI, Kenya — For days, the American envoy navigated between the army chief and the prime minister, striving to head off the collapse of a tenuous democratic transition in Sudan that had been two years in the making. At a final meeting late Sunday night, General al-Burhan assured Mr. Feltman he would do nothing to undermine the country’s transition to democracy. With that, the American diplomat caught a flight to Qatar where, on landing, his phone lit up: A coup was underway in Sudan. “They lied to him,” said Nureldin Satti, Sudan’s ambassador to the United States, referring to his country’s military leadership. “This is very serious, because when you lie to the U.S., you have to pay the consequences.”

Sudan coup throws rock into choppy Nile waters

A coup in Sudan raises the odds that disagreements, particularly over Ethiopia’s building of a massive hydroelectric dam, become confrontation. The 1959 Nile Waters Agreement, negotiated with colonial Britain, allocated its entire annual flow to the pair, split 75-25 in Egypt’s favour. The clearest manifestation of Addis Ababa’s new clout is the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), a $5 billion hydroelectric barrage nearing completion across the Nile near the Sudanese border. - The African Union suspended Sudan on Oct. 27 pending the restoration of civilian rule. The World Bank, which had granted Sudan access to $2 billion in financing, also said it had paused disbursement of funds.

His announcement came hours after the military arrested Hamdok along with several other senior officials and political leaders.

Life came to a halt in the capital Khartoum and its twin city Omdurman across the Nile, with roads blocked either by soldiers or by barricades erected by protesters. A health ministry official said seven people had been killed in clashes between protesters and the security forces. Sudan has been ruled for most of its post-colonial history by military leaders who seized power in coups. Since Bashir was toppled, the military shared power uneasily with civilians under a transition meant to lead to elections in 2023. The country had been on edge since last month when a failed coup plot, blamed on Bashir supporters, unleashed recriminations between the military and civilians.

After a night of unrest, Sudan’s capital fell quiet for a brief time on Tuesday with schools, shops and banks shuttered in response to a call by pro-democracy groups for civil disobedience to protest against the military seizure of power that has threatened to derail a transition to civilian rule after decades of brutal dictatorship. But by midday, large crowds of protesters began flooding back into the streets in Khartoum and other major cities ahead of an expected address by the military chief who led the coup. Government officials said there was still no information on the whereabouts of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and four other civilian government ministers who were detained by the military on Monday. “It is indeed very worrying,” said Monim El-Jak, a government adviser. The scenes have been reminiscent of 2019, when thousands of protesters came to the streets in a revolt that ultimately ended three decades of dictatorship under Omar Hassan al-Bashir.

A day after he seized power in Sudan, the country’s top general said on Tuesday that he is detaining the civilian prime minister in his own home, and defended the coup as necessary for stability — even as large crowds of protesters flooded the streets of the capital and other major cities to resist the military takeover. “He is in my own residence,” Lt. Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who led the coup, said in a news conference in the capital, Khartoum. The military’s capture of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and other civilian government ministers on Monday derailed a transition to civilian rule and plunged Sudan back into fear and uncertainty after a two-year period of tenuous hope. When the prime minister refused to issue a statement in support of the military takeover, he was kidnapped on Monday along with his wife, the information ministry said. But General al-Burhan insisted on Tuesday, “He was not kidnapped.

Justin Lane/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoUNITED NATIONS, Oct 26 (Reuters) - U.N. chief Antonio Guterres assailed what he called "an epidemic of coup d'états" on Tuesday and urged the Security Council to act to effectively deter them as the 15-member body prepared to discuss the military takeover in Sudan. Sudan's top general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan on Tuesday defended the military takeover, saying he had ousted the government of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok to avoid civil war. The Security Council - which has the ability to impose sanctions or authorize military action - has been split on how to approach various conflicts, with the United States and other western council members pitted against Russia and China. "My appeal, obviously, is for - especially the big powers - to come together for the unity of the Security Council in order to make sure that there is effective deterrence in relation to this epidemic of coup d'états," Guterres said. The council has issued statements expressing concern about the situation in Myanmar and condemning the military takeover in Mali.

CAIRO — Military forces arrested Sudan’s acting prime minister and senior government officials Monday, disrupted internet access and blocked bridges in the capital Khartoum, the country’s information ministry said, describing the actions as a coup. In response, thousands flooded the streets of Khartoum and its twin city of Omdurman to protest the apparent military takeover. Armed forces detained Sudan's Prime Minister over his refusal to support their "coup," the information ministry said, after weeks of tensions. By mid-morning, the information ministry confirmed that the prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok, had been arrested and taken to an undisclosed location. At one point, military forces stormed the offices of Sudan’s state-run television in Omdurman and detained a number of workers, the information ministry said.
