Sudan`s military dissolves civilian government

Sudan's military has dissolved civilian rule, arrested political leaders and declared a state of emergency, reports BBC.

Gen Abdel Fattah Burhan, who had been heading a joint council with civilian leaders, blamed political infighting.

Protesters have taken to the streets of the capital, Khartoum, and there are reports of gunfire.

Military and civilian leaders have been at odds since long-time ruler Omar al-Bashir was overthrown two years ago and a transitional government set up.

Although the country remains in a deep economic crisis, there had been more international support - and a military takeover will put that hugely at risk.

Video footage from the north African nation's capital on Monday showed protesters manning lit barricades and entering the area near the military's headquarters.
