DW News published this video item, entitled “Sudan military says a ‘failed’ coup attempt is under control | DW News” – below is their description.
Sudanese state TV announced on Tuesday that there had been a “failed” coup in the country, adding that there had been an attempt to take control of the public media building in Omdurman, across the river Nile from the capital Khartoum.
The country’s sovereign council said that the situation had been handled and that law enforcement would begin questioning suspects immediately.
Mohammed Hassan al-Taishi, a member of the sovereign council, called the attempt a “foolish and bad choice.”
Soon thereafter, Sudan’s military confirmed the earlier reports.
State-run news agency SUNA quoted Brigadier Al-Tahir Abu Haja, a spokesman for military, as saying that the armed forces “thwarted the attempted coup and that all is completely under control.”
All soldiers who had taken part in the would-be power grab had been detained, he added.
