- There was a military coup in Sudan in October
Abdallah Hamdok, the Prime Minister of the South African country of Sudan, announced his resignation amid a political deadlock. In fact, there was a recent military coup in Sudan and the army took power by overthrowing Abdalla Hamdok. However, later military officers agreed to reinstate Abdalla Hamdok as PM.
But now on Sunday, Abdalla Hamdok announced his resignation. Earlier on Sunday, military security forces used force to disperse protesters demanding restoration of democracy. During this, two people lost their lives in the firing.
In fact, thousands of people gathered to demonstrate in the Sudanese capital Khartoum and other cities after the Sami coup. However, later the army reinstated Prime Minister Abdalla under a deal. But the pro-democracy movement was sidelined.
In Sudan, the doctors’ committee, which was supporting the pro-democracy movement, said one civilian died of a head injury, while another civilian was shot and killed. The committee says that dozens of civilians have been injured.

On October 25, there was a military coup in Sudan. After this, government officials and leaders were arrested. In the streets of the capital Khartoum after the military coup, security forces fired tear gas at protesters marching towards the Rashtrapati Bhavan demanding a complete withdrawal from military politics. Since 25 October, when the military declared a state of emergency and disbanded the civilian leadership, at least 40 people have been killed in mass protests against the coup.
After this, Abdalla was returned to power under an agreement. During this, Abdalla Hamdok had said that he had agreed to this agreement only to stop the violence. But once again Abdalla resigned after the violence between the protesters and the security forces.
