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.
