The Prime Minister of the transitional government in Sudan Abdullah Hamdock has returned home after being detained at the home of General Abdel Fattah al-Burhane.

The latter seems to have yielded to pressure from the international community which demanded the release of the Prime Minister arrested on Monday.

General Burhane had tried to reassure Tuesday by ensuring that the head of government was at his own home.

However, ministers are still being held in unknown locations, according to the announcement made by Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdock’s office.

Meanwhile, the climate remains tense in the country.

Supporters of the civilian regime are still demonstrating against the coup and asking for international aid in order to save, they say, the revolution that led to the downfall of Omar al-Bashir.

The demonstrators want all the transitional civil authorities to be reinstated in their functions.

Moreover, the security forces, according to activists, arrested several leaders of political parties, attacked students on the campus of the University of Khartoum and fired tear gas canisters to disperse demonstrators in the bustling district of Bourri, in the east of the capital.

Already on Monday, four demonstrators had been killed by gunfire, according to a pro-democracy doctors’ union, and more than 80 wounded, on the first day of a condemned coup in the West, which cost this poor country ‘East Africa crucial American aid and could cause it to lose European financial support.

After the proclamation of “civil disobedience”, the demonstrators want, they say, “to save” the revolution which in 2019 overthrew the regime of Omar al-Bashir, which fell under pressure from the streets and from the army.
