Alwaght- An attempted coup in Sudan “failed” early on Tuesday, state media reported, without identifying the plotters.
“There has been a failed coup attempt, the people should confront it,” state media reported.
A top government source told Agence France-Presse (AFP) the plotters had attempted to take over the state media building but "they failed".
Another Sudanese source said that measures are taken to contain it, according to Reuters. The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the coup had involved an attempt to take control of state radio in Omdurman, across the river Nile from the capital Khartoum.
Sudan's Sovereign Council spokesman Mohamed al-Faki Suleiman said Tuesday that Sudanese army will issue a statement shortly to address the latest developments.
